Codes and Frequencies
For sample adults ages 18 and older who have ever had a diagnosis for a language problem that lasted a week or longer, VSLLGGENE reports whether the respondent's problem understanding words or sentences was caused by a genetic syndrome, such as Down's Syndrome or Fragile X Syndrome.
VSLLGGENE is part of the Adult Voice, Speech and Language Supplement. For related variables and more information, please use the IPUMS NHIS search function and drop-down menus, or see VSLDIAG, which reports on diagnosis, VSLVDAYS, which reports on the problem duration and extent, and VSLVSLPYR, which reports on treatment.
