For only sample adults in 2015, sample children ages 6-17 and sample adults in 2020, and only sample children ages 6-17 in 2022, WLKSDWLK reports if most streets have sidewalks where they live. Beginning in 2020, the sample child's question more specifically asks if there are roads, sidewalks, paths or trails where they live where they can walk or ride a bicycle.

WLKSDWLK is part of a series of variables about a person's perceptions of their walking environment. Please see WLKHOME for the full list of variables.


While the basic meaning of this variable is completely comparable over time, major questionnaire changes introduced in 2019 may affect comparability with earlier years. The NHIS questionnaire was substantially redesigned in 2019 to introduce a different data collection structure and new content. For more information on changes in terminology, universes, and data collection methods beginning in 2019, please see the user note.
