Self Reported NHANES BMI data
datasetposted on 28.03.2018 by John C. Lang, Hans De Sterck, Daniel M. Abrams
Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
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.
