For sample adults who had never used yoga (YTQYOGAEV), YTQNEVCOST identifies those who responded, "It costs too much" when asked, "Please tell me the reasons why you have never used yoga." Respondents could supply more than one reason for never having used yoga.

Other reasons for never using yoga are recorded in the following variables:

  • YTQNEVHC (Health care worker said not to)

Although 16 alternative health modalities were covered in the 2007 alternative health supplement, only in the case of acupuncture (see ACUNEVCOST), chiropractic and osteopathic manipulation (see COMNEVCOST), meditation (see RELNEVCOST), and yoga were survey participants asked why they had never used the method.

For more information about the full range of variables related to yoga, including definitions, see YTQYOGYR.
