Abstract
The basic purpose of the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) is to obtain information about the amount and distribution of illness, its effects in terms of disability and chronic impairments, and the kinds of health services people receive. Person variables include sex, age, race, marital status, veteran status, education, income, industry and occupation codes, limits on activity, number and duration of hospital stays, and doctor visits. The Poliomyelitis Supplement features questions on whether respondents were ever told they had polio (N=821), whether they ever had paralysis caused by polio, and if they had any current impairment caused by polio.
