For sample persons under 5 years old, WASHANDEV reports if the child has ever washed and dried his or her hands without any help except for turning the water on and off.

Child motor and social development variables should be combined with AGE, BIRTHMO (Month of birth), and INTERVWMO (Month of NHIS interview) to provide complete information about the child's developmental progress. For more information on how the child's specific age is relevant to this variable, please see HEADTURNEV.

For related variables, please use the IPUMS NHIS search function and drop-down menus.
