For a selected group of sample adults age 18 and over, WINEYR is a recoded variable which reports how many times in the past year the respondent drank wine.

WINEYR was part of the 1987 and 1992 cancer epidemiology supplements. For related variables, please use the IPUMS NHIS search function and drop-down menus.


Apart from changes in the sampling design (see Universe tab for details), this variable is comparable over time. Changes in survey design (e.g., quarters in which the supplement was collected) may affect raw frequencies, but do not affect comparability of the variable. As always, data users should use the prescribed IHIS weights.
