The basic 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. The purpose of this supplement was to obtain current data concerning problems with the feet, access to foot care, and the amount, frequency, and type of foot care obtained. The file contains approximately 90 variables from the core file (see NATIONAL HEALTH INTERVIEW SURVEY, 1990 [ICPSR 9839]), including sex, age, race, marital status, veteran status, education, income, industry and occupation codes, and limits on activity. Variables unique to this supplement include toenail, infection, corn, and callus problems, flat feet or fallen arches, deformities, sprains, strains, or fractures, arthritis, length of time with and prevalence of the problem, health insurance that covered foot problems, the types of health professional seen for foot problems, and where the health professionals were seen.

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.

Per agreement with NCHS, ICPSR distributes the data file(s) and technical documentation in this collection in their original form as prepared by NCHS. The age distribution is under 6 years (N = 11,685), 6-16 years (N = 19,793), 17-24 years (N = 12,995), 25-34 years (N = 20,020), 35-44 years (N = 17,995), 45-54 years (N = 12,266), 55-64 years (N = 10,299), 65-74 years (N = 8,769), and 75+ years (N = 5,809). The racial/ethnic distribution is White (N = 94,935), Black (N = 17,967), Asian/Pacific Islander (N = 2,815), Native American (N = 959), multiple (N = 131), and other or unknown (N = 2,824).

The NHIS uses a multistage probability sampling design. Four independent representative samples, which may be used in any combination, were drawn. Black persons were oversampled.
