Codes and Frequencies
For sample adults in 2007 who had practiced yoga (YTQYOGYR), Tai chi (YTQTAIYR), or Qi gong (YTQIGYR) during the past 12 months, YTQMOST reports which of those three practices the respondent had used most often. Interviewers were given the instruction, "If respondent cannot choose one practice, probe for the one most important for health."
The practice identified in YTQMOST is used to fill in question wording on many subsequent survey items. For example, YTQTREAT asks, "Did you practice [fill: practice used most] for a specific health problem or condition?"
For more information on the full range of variables related to yoga, Tai chi, and Qi gong, including definitions, see YTQYOGYR.
