Codes and Frequencies
For sample adults ages 18 and older, VSLVYR reports if the person had any problems or difficulties with her or his voice in the past year, such as hoarse, raspy, or strained voice, or difficulty speaking loud enough to be heard.
VSLVYR 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.
