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. Provided with this Prescribed Medication Supplement are variables from the 1973 core Person File (see HEALTH INTERVIEW SURVEY, 1973 [ICPSR 8338]) including items such as sex, age, race, marital status, veteran status, education, income, industry and occupation codes, and limits on activity. This Prescribed Medicine Supplement features information on when, how, and the number of times prescriptions were obtained, and the cost and payment source of prescriptions. The Prescribed Medicine File (Part 1) documents activity restriction, bed disability, work or school loss days, hospitalization days, the number of chronic conditions obtained, and source of payment for medication and care.
