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, 1994 [ICPSR 6724]), including sex, age, race, education, family income, limitations on school activities, family relationship, and relationship to reference person. For this supplement, information was collected on vaccines received by children under 6 years old for diphtheria/tetanus/pertussis (DPT), polio, measles or MMR, hemophilus type B or HIB, and hepatitis B, the number of shots the child received for each type of vaccine, and other types of shots received. Interviews were conducted with adult respondents and vaccine information was gathered, when possible, from records maintained by the family.

In preparing the data file(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.
