Data Collection Notes:
Per agreement with the National Center for health Statistics (NCHS), ICPSR distributes the data
file(s) and technical documentation in this collection in their original form as prepared by NCHS.
Extent of Processing: ICPSR data undergo a confidentiality review and are altered when necessary to limit the risk of
disclosure. ICPSR also routinely creates ready-to-go data files along with setups in the major
statistical software formats as well as standard codebooks to accompany the data. In addition to
these procedures, ICPSR performed the following processing steps for this data collection:
Created variable labels and/or value labels.
Created online analysis version with question text.
Restrictions: In preparing the data tape(s) for this collection, the
National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) has removed direct
identifiers and characteristics that might lead to identification of
data subjects. As an additional precaution, NCHS requires, under
section 308(d) of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 242m), that
data collected by NCHS not be used for any purpose other than
statistical analysis and reporting. NCHS further requires that analysts
not use the data to learn the identity of any persons or establishments
and that the director of NCHS be notified if any identities are
inadvertently discovered. ICPSR member institutions and other users
ordering data from ICPSR are expected to adhere to these restrictions.
