This data file supplies date and cause of death data for sample persons included in the Supplement on Aging (SOA) to the NATIONAL HEALTH INTERVIEW SURVEY, 1984 (ICPSR 8659). It can also be used for the cohort included in the NATIONAL HEALTH INTERVIEW SURVEY: LONGITUDINAL STUDY OF AGING, 70 YEARS AND OVER, 1984-1989 (ICPSR 8719), a follow-up to the SOA. The file contains the date of death for 4,230 persons who died by the end of 1991. It also contains the cause of death for 2,515 persons who died by the end of 1989. Records of participants in the SOA were matched with the National Death Index only if the participant provided all the information after being told that it would be used for matching for 1984-1989. Of the 16,148 participants, 15,974 provided the information and their records were matched to the National Death Index for the years 1984-1989. Of those 15,974, a total of 3,113 matched either on all items (2,640) or on the critical items (473). Records of the 3,113 decedents were then matched with multiple cause of death files only for the years 1984-1989. This file contains the identification number for adding this information to the Supplement on Aging and the Longitudinal Study of Aging files. Also supplied are the underlying cause of death (up to eight multiple causes of death), whether an autopsy was performed, the place of death, and codes for the occupation and industry of the deceased, as reported on the death certificate.

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.
