First Published: September, 2011
Revised: NA
Access Constraints: None

Record Source: NHANES 2009 - 2010
Survey Methodology: NHANES 2009 - 2010 is a stratified multistage probability sample of the civilian non-institutionalized population of the U.S.
Medium: NHANES Web site; SAS transport files

Component Description

The physical functioning section (PFQ) provides self-reported data on functional limitations caused by long-term physical, mental, and emotional problems or illness. It can be used to assess an individual’s level of disability.

Eligible Sample

All survey participants 5 or more years of age were eligible. Those less than 18 years of age were asked about receiving Special Education or Early Intervention Services. Respondents 5 to 19 years of age were asked about mobility and those 20 or more years of age were asked about their ability to work.

Interview Setting and Mode of Administration

The questions were asked in the household interview as a part of a computer-assisted personal interview (CAPI).

Data Processing and Editing

Edits were made to ensure the completeness, consistency, and analytic usefulness of the data.

Analytic Notes

Since the questions were asked in the home interview, the interview sample weights may be used in their analysis. However, if the data is joined with data from the Mobile Examination Center (MEC), the MEC sample weights should be used.

Please refer to the NHANES Analytic Guidelines and the on-line NHANES Tutorial for further details on the use of sample weights and other analytic issues.
