Codes and Frequencies
For sample adults ages 18 and older who had a swallowing problem in the past 12 months that lasted for at least a week, VSLSWSLPYR reports whether the person saw a speech-language pathologist (SLP) or other health care professional for swallowing problems in the past year.
VSLSWSLPYR 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.
