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 files 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
