Description

Respondents reported whether they took medication for feelings of worry, nervousness, or anxiety.

In 2010, this item was collected for sample adults who completed the Quality of Life supplement (administered to approximately a quarter of sample adults). Beginning in 2011, this item was collected for sample adults who completed the Adult Functioning and Disability supplement (administered to a subset of sample adults).

Comparability

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 IPUMS NHIS weights.
