Component Description

This section contains questions for females only, on reproductive health, including menstrual history, pregnancy history, lactation, oral contraceptive and hormone replacement therapy use and other related conditions. Several questions related to gestational diabetes are new in 2007-08. Some questions were modified. A significant number of questions were removed altogether or replaced with a modified variable since the 2005-06 data release (see Analytic notes).

Eligible Sample

Mobile examination female participants 12 years and older were eligible.

Interview Setting and Mode of Administration

These questions were administered as part of the MEC interview questionnaire, using the Computer-Assisted Personal Interviewing-CAPI (interviewer administered) system in Spanish or English. Both proxy interviewers and interpreters were permitted for these questions.

Quality Assurance & Quality Control

Approximately 5% of the interviews were recorded and reviewed for quality control purposes.

Data Processing and Editing

The reproductive health questionnaire is a complex, detailed set of questions that are administered acccording to age and skip patterns based on responses to various reproductive health conditions. While the data were reviewed and edited for completeness and illogical values, some inconsistencies in the response to these self-reported questions remain. Data analysts are strongly encouraged to carefully review all variables of interest prior to data analysis.

Analytic Notes

This data file contains all variables for females 12 years and older, whereas the publicly released data set (RHQ_E) has limited information for females 12-19 years of age due to possible disclosure risks.

Due to sample design changes for 2007-08, pregnant women and individuals 12-19 were no longer oversampled. Additionally, for each of the race/ethnicity domains, the former 12-15 and 16-19 year age domains were combined and the 40-59 year age minority domains were split into two 10-year age sampling domains: 40-49 and 50-59. This change results in an increase in the actual number of participants 40-59 years and a decrease in 12-19 year olds, as compared to previous cycles. Therefore, unweighted frequencies of certain reproductive conditions may differ slightly in this survey cycle compared to earlier survey cycles. For further discussion, please see the Analytic Notes for the Demographic data file: http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/nhanes/nhanes2007-2008/DEMO_E.htm

Notes for specific variables:
RHQ143: Current pregnancy by self-report is collected primarily to determine appropriate question skip patterns according to various reproductive conditions in this section. However, analysts are strongly advised to use the all inclusive pregnancy variable RIDEXPREG, found in the Demographic data file, for all analyses where the determination of pregnancy status is necessary. RIDEXPREG includes both self-reported and the results of the urine pregnancy test.

New, modified and excluded variables for 2007-2008:

New:
RHQ162: During pregnancy, told you have diabetes
RHQ163: Age told you had diabetes while pregnant
RHQ172: Any babies weigh 9 lbs or more?
RHQ173: Age when delivered baby 9 lbs or more

Modification and replacement of former question (new variable name):
RHQ205: Breastfed any child for one month (replaces RHQ210 and RHQ230)
RHQ305: Both ovaries removed (replaces RHQ300, RHQ310, and RHQ320)
RHQ332: Age when both ovaries removed (replaces- RHQ330)

Excluded:
RHQ051: When did you have your last period
RHQ080: Days since last period
RHQ250: Any child weigh 5.5 lbs at birth?
RHQ260: # children weighing 5.5 lbs at birth
RHD270: Number of children born preterm
