Self Reported NHANES BMI data
datasetposted on 28.03.2018, 23:57 by John C. Lang, Hans De Sterck, Daniel M. Abrams
Self-reported NHANES data are stored in NHANES SR.csv in CSV format. This file contains five colums: year t, BMI in year t − 1 (i.e. year prior to the interview), BMI in year t (i.e. at time of interview), age in year t, and gender. Note 1: We associate NHANES data from survey 1999-2000 with t = 1999, from survey 2001-2002 with t = 2001, and so on. Note 2: Because self-reported NHANES data are only used for individual-level computations, NHANES SR.csv only records data from respondents who reported both (a) BMI at time of NHANES interview and (b) BMI one year prior to NHANES interview.
