For sample adults and sample children ages 1-17, UNMTNDDT indicates whether, in the past 12 months, there was any time they needed dental care, but did not get it because of the cost. For related variables about access to dental care, please see DENTINT (interval since last dental visit) and DELAYDT (delayed getting dental care, past 12 months).


The NHIS questionnaire was substantially redesigned in 2019 to introduce a different data collection structure and new content. For more information on changes in terminology, universes, and data collection methods beginning in 2019, please see the user note.
