Why is the category not available for injcausfall in Year 2015?


How do I know how many individuals had no injuries by fall at that time period of 3 months?

If I can’t find out, how do I account for that missing response in my data?

Thank you.



Congratulations! You have found a data error in IPUMS NHIS! The IPUMS Health Surveys team has identified the source of this error and is now working on a fix. They estimate that the corrected data will become available with the release of the 2016 sample, expected by the end of July. It is possible to create this variable based on the injury records from a hierarchical extract of the data.
