Graduate Mail: Health Module

OVERVIEW

The 1993 round of WLS data collection was the first to include items directly
ascertaining health and health behaviors. During the 2004 round, additional
information about childhood health, access to health care, health utilization,
quality of life, and future health projections was collected - both by
telephone and using a mail questionnaire. This round (2011), the mail
questionnaire focuses on general health, current diagnoses and their
interference with enjoyable activities, daytime drowsiness and sleep problems,
physical attributes, trends in bodily weight, examinations and health
appointments during the past 5 years, changes in quality of vision and hearing
during the past 5 years, current medications and their attributes, cigarette
smoking history and trends, alcohol use and its effects, bodily organ donation,
end of life wishes and expectations, and biological relatives' health
histories.

Whenever this occurred, this variable was coded to reflect the most conservative interpretation possible. If, for example, a participant reported that their medication's label read, "take 1-2 tablets every 4-6 hours," it would have been interpreted as "take 1 tablet every 6 hours." Recoding of this variable would subsequently reflect that most conservative interpretation, resulting in a value of "4" here and a code of "times per day" on JX9003RE.

Note: Century-months are the months elapsed since the beginning of the year 1900. July of 1995 would, for example, represent century-month 1147 (since 95 full years have elapsed since the beginning of 1900 and July is 7 months into the year 1995, multiplying 95 by the 12 months there are in each year and adding 7 yields 1147).
Note: If the participant does not report the month they began taking their medication but does provide the year, June (as the middlemost month) is used to calculate the century-month they began taking it. For example, if a participant only tells us that they began taking their medication in 2007, the century-month would be calculated as 1290 (since 2007 represents 107 full years elapsed since the beginning of 1900 and June is the 6th month of the year, multiplying 107 by 12 and adding 6 yields 1290).

Note: In a very small number of cases, participants reported a range in response to the question, "how often does the label say you should take this medication?" Whenever this occurred, this variable was coded to reflect the most conservative interpretation possible. If, for example, a participant reported that their medication's label read, "take 1-2 tablets every 4-6 hours," it would have been interpreted as "take 1 tablet every 6 hours." Recoding of this variable would subsequently reflect that most conservative interpretation, resulting in a value of "4" here and a code of "times per day" on JX9015RE.

Note: Century-months are the months elapsed since the beginning of the year 1900. July of 1995 would, for example, represent century-month 1147 (since 95 full years have elapsed since the beginning of 1900 and July is 7 months into the year 1995, multiplying 95 by the 12 months there are in each year and adding 7 yields 1147).
Note: If the participant does not report the month they began taking their medication but does provide the year, June (as the middlemost month) is used to calculate the century-month they began taking it. For example, if a participant only tells us that they began taking their medication in 2007, the century-month would be calculated as 1290 (since 2007 represents 107 full years elapsed since the beginning of 1900 and June is the 6th month of the year, multiplying 107 by 12 and adding 6 yields 1290).

Note: Century-months are the months elapsed since the beginning of the year 1900. July of 1995 would, for example, represent century-month 1147 (since 95 full years have elapsed since the beginning of 1900 and July is 7 months into the year 1995, multiplying 95 by the 12 months there are in each year and adding 7 yields 1147).
Note: If the participant does not report the month they began taking their medication but does provide the year, June (as the middlemost month) is used to calculate the century-month they began taking it. For example, if a participant only tells us that they began taking their medication in 2007, the century-month would be calculated as 1290 (since 2007 represents 107 full years elapsed since the beginning of 1900 and June is the 6th month of the year, multiplying 107 by 12 and adding 6 yields 1290).

Note: In a very small number of cases, participants reported a range in response to the question, "how often does the label say you should take this medication?" Whenever this occurred, this variable was coded to reflect the most conservative interpretation possible. If, for example, a participant reported that their medication's label read, "take 1-2 tablets every 4-6 hours," it would have been interpreted as "take 1 tablet every 6 hours." Recoding of this variable would subsequently reflect that most conservative interpretation, resulting in a value of "4" here and a code of "times per day" on JX9033RE.

Whenever this occurred, this variable was coded to reflect the most conservative interpretation possible. If, for example, a participant reported that their medication's label read, "take 1-2 tablets every 4-6 hours," it would have been interpreted as "take 1 tablet every 6 hours."

Note: Century-months are the months elapsed since the beginning of the year 1900. July of 1995 would, for example, represent century-month 1147 (since 95 full years have elapsed since the beginning of 1900 and July is 7 months into the year 1995, multiplying 95 by the 12 months there are in each year and adding 7 yields 1147).
Note: If the participant does not report the month they began taking their medication but does provide the year, June (as the middlemost month) is used to calculate the century-month they began taking it. For example, if a participant only tells us that they began taking their medication in 2007, the century-month would be calculated as 1290 (since 2007 represents 107 full years elapsed since the beginning of 1900 and June is the 6th month of the year, multiplying 107 by 12 and adding 6 yields 1290).

Note: Century-months are the months elapsed since the beginning of the year 1900. July of 1995 would, for example, represent century-month 1147 (since 95 full years have elapsed since the beginning of 1900 and July is 7 months into the year 1995, multiplying 95 by the 12 months there are in each year and adding 7 yields 1147).
Note: If the participant does not report the month they began taking their medication but does provide the year, June (as the middlemost month) is used to calculate the century-month they began taking it. For example, if a participant only tells us that they began taking their medication in 2007, the century-month would be calculated as 1290 (since 2007 represents 107 full years elapsed since the beginning of 1900 and June is the 6th month of the year, multiplying 107 by 12 and adding 6 yields 1290).

Note: In a very small number of cases, participants reported a range in response to the question, "how often does the label say you should take this medication?" Whenever this occurred, this variable was coded to reflect the most conservative interpretation possible. If, for example, a participant reported that their medication's label read, "take 1-2 tablets every 4-6 hours," it would have been interpreted as "take 1 tablet every 6 hours." Recoding of this variable would subsequently reflect that most conservative interpretation, resulting in a value of "4" here and a code of "times per day" on JX9063RE. The WLS will make the originally reported ranges available upon request.

Note: In a very small number of cases, participants reported a range in response to the question, "how often does the label say you should take this medication?" Whenever this occurred, this variable was coded to reflect the most conservative interpretation possible. If, for example, a participant reported that their medication's label read, "take 1-2 tablets every 4-6 hours," it would have been interpreted as "take 1 tablet every 6 hours." Recoding of this variable would subsequently reflect that most conservative interpretation, resulting in a value of "4" here and a code of "times per day" on JX9075RE. The WLS will make the originally reported ranges available upon request.

Note: Century-months are the months elapsed since the beginning of the year 1900. July of 1995 would, for example, represent century-month 1147 (since 95 full years have elapsed since the beginning of 1900 and July is 7 months into the year 1995, multiplying 95 by the 12 months there are in each year and adding 7 yields 1147).
Note: If the participant does not report the month they began taking their medication but does provide the year, June (as the middlemost month) is used to calculate the century-month they began taking it. For example, if a participant only tells us that they began taking their medication in 2007, the century-month would be calculated as 1290 (since 2007 represents 107 full years elapsed since the beginning of 1900 and June is the 6th month of the year, multiplying 107 by 12 and adding 6 yields 1290).

Note: In a very small number of cases, participants reported a range in response to the question, "how often does the label say you should take this medication?" Whenever this occurred, this variable was coded to reflect the most conservative interpretation possible. If, for example, a participant reported that their medication's label read, "take 1-2 tablets every 4-6 hours," it would have been interpreted as "take 1 tablet every 6 hours." Recoding of this variable would subsequently reflect that most conservative interpretation, resulting in a value of "4" here and a code of "times per day" on JX9093RE. The WLS will make the originally reported ranges available upon request.

Note: Century-months are the months elapsed since the beginning of the year 1900. July of 1995 would, for example, represent century-month 1147 (since 95 full years have elapsed since the beginning of 1900 and July is 7 months into the year 1995, multiplying 95 by the 12 months there are in each year and adding 7 yields 1147).
Note: If the participant does not report the month they began taking their medication but does provide the year, June (as the middlemost month) is used to calculate the century-month they began taking it. For example, if a participant only tells us that they began taking their medication in 2007, the century-month would be calculated as 1290 (since 2007 represents 107 full years elapsed since the beginning of 1900 and June is the 6th month of the year, multiplying 107 by 12 and adding 6 yields 1290).
