Codes and Frequencies
For sample adults ages 18 and older who received treatment/rehabilitative services for a swallowing problem in the past 12 months, VSLSWPROF reports whether some other health professional (beyond those listed in the survey response categories) provided the treatment. Health professionals listed in the survey include speech-language pathologist, family physician/general practitioner/osteopath, rehabilitation specialist, otolaryngologist (ear, nose, and throat doctor), audiologist/hearing specialist/hearing aid technician, specialty doctor, nutritionist or dietician, psychiatrist or psychologist, nurse or nurse practitioner, and dentist/orthodontist/oral surgeon.
VSLSWPROF 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.
