The 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. This supplement includes variables from the NHIS core Person File (see NATIONAL HEALTH INTERVIEW SURVEY, 1993 [ICPSR 6534]), including sex, age, race, marital status, veteran status, education, income, industry and occupation codes, and limits on activity. The Year 2000 Supplement also contains items on nine selected topics that relate to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Year 2000 Health Objectives: environmental health, tobacco use, nutrition, occupational safety and health, heart disease, other chronic and disabling conditions, clinical and preventive services, mental health, and oral health. Among the variables included in this supplement are type of residence, whether the home was built before 1950, whether household air was tested for radon, current smoking status, current activities to control weight, employer-sponsored exercise programs, amount of stress in the past year, and the effect of stress on health in the past year. Variables included in the sections on mental health and oral health include the amount of stress in the past two weeks and in the past year, total number of dental visits in the past 12 months, loss of teeth, and general health status.
