Principal Investigator(s):

Summary:

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 Accident Supplement to the 1975 NHIS contains information on all types of accident activity, including motor vehicle accidents, in which respondents were involved. Information is supplied on the date of the accident, location of the accident, how the accident occurred, place where the respondent first saw a doctor, type of injury, whether a vehicle was involved, type of activity the respondent was engaged in when the accident occurred, product causing injuries, and contributing factors. Person variables from the core questionnaire (see HEALTH INTERVIEW SURVEY, 1975 [ICPSR 7672]) include sex, age, race, education, income, and limits on activity.
