Component Description

The Cardiovascular Disease and Health section (variable name prefix CDQ) provides SP level interview data on evaluating cardiovascular health and includes questions to assess the presence of angina pectoris as defined by the Rose1 questionnaire.

Eligible Sample

All study participants who are 40 years of age and older are asked to respond to this section.

Interview Setting and Mode of Administration

Household interview; In-person

The Interviewer Procedure Manuals and Exam Manuals can be found on the NHANES website.

The survey questionnaires can be found on the NHANES website.

Quality Assurance & Quality Control

For details on the QA/QC process for this component, please refer to the Interviewer Procedure Manuals and Exam Manuals.

Data Processing and Editing

Data for CDQ031, CDQ041, CDQ051 and CDQ071 were only asked of study participants 40-49 years of age, and are not being publicly released due to the increased risk of inadvertent disclosure.

Analytic Notes

The variables in this section are comparable to the variables released for 2001-2002. Other than question CDQ010, these questions are not comparable to the CDQ questions for NHANES 1999-2000, which focused on symptoms related to congestive heart failure.

Rose questionnaire criteria:
Grade 1 Angina is defined as CDQ001 = 1 and CDQ002 = 1 (but CDQ003 ≠ 1) and CDQ004 = 1 and CDQ005 = 1 and CDQ006 = 1, plus either (CDQ009D = 4 or CDQ009E = 5) or (CDQ009F = 6 and CDQ009G = 7).
Grade 2 Angina is defined as CDQ001 = 1 and CDQ002 = 1 and CDQ003 = 1 and CDQ004 = 1 and CDQ005 = 1 and CDQ006 = 1, plus either (CDQ009D = 4 or CDQ009E = 5) or (CDQ009F = 6 and CDQ009G = 7).
