Origin recode NHIA (Hispanic, non-Hisp)
This variable was derived from the NAACCR standard variables Spanish/Hispanic Origin , Name-Last , Name-Maiden , Birthplace , Race 1 , IHS Link , and Sex .
The NAACCR Hispanic Identification Algorithm (NHIA) uses the combination of these variables to classify cases directly or indirectly as Hispanic for analytic purposes.
Considerations for Use
- This variable is available only in the U.S. Data 2001–2018 database.
- States have the option to suppress race-specific and Hispanic-specific data every submission year. While these states can be included in an aggregated analysis, the state’s race and ethnicity information cannot be reported at the state level.
- The following states have state-level race or ethnicity data presentation restrictions—
- Data for Hispanic ethnicity cannot be displayed for Delaware, Kentucky, and Massachusetts.
- Data for race and ethnicity combinations—White Hispanic, White non-Hispanic, Black Hispanic, and Black non-Hispanic—cannot be displayed for Delaware, Kansas, Kentucky, Massachusetts, and Pennsylvania.
- Blank values are allowed for states that chose not to include data for NHIA in this file.
