National Health Interview Survey, 1986: Multiple Cause of Death, Dates of Death, 1986-1991 (ICPSR 6475) RSS

Principal Investigator(s):

Summary:

This data file supplies the date and cause of death for sample persons included in the NATIONAL HEALTH INTERVIEW SURVEY, 1986 (ICPSR 8976) who died between 1986 and the end of 1991. Linkage information collected on respondents 18 years of age and older as part of the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) was used to match these respondents to the National Death Index. The vital status information produced from the matches can be linked with the NHIS data to provide a longitudinal component to those data. Variables include survey year, quarter, household number, person number, year of death, month of death, whether an autopsy was performed, vital status classification information, causes of death, and hospital and patient status.
