For all persons, WLDAY2WKDEN records the number of days in the past two weeks that a person missed more than half a day of work because of a dental problem or visit.

WLDAY2WKDEN was introduced in 1989 as part of a series of variables used to determine whether an illness or injury has caused persons to restrict their usual activities during the two-week reference period.
