For sample adults and sample children whose activities were limited at least "a little" by wheezing or whistling during the past 12 months (WHEZLIMITACT), WHEZDAYR reports the number of work or school days missed due to wheezing or whistling in the past 12 months. Only sample adults and sample children who had a wheezing or whistling sound in their chest during the past 12 months (WHEZYR) were asked about the amount that wheezing or whistling limited their activities.

Other variables based on follow-up questions to those who answered affirmatively to WHEZYR include:

  • Times per week wheezing disturbed sleep (WHEZSLEEPNO)
  • Chest sounds wheezy after exercise (WHEZEXER)

  • Number doctor/hospital ER visits for wheezing (WHEZVISITNO)


This variable is only available in 1999.
