Description

BIOFHEMOLEVEL (V453) reports the level of hemoglobin in the respondent's blood, in terms of grams per deciliter (g/dl), based on testing of blood drawn by DHS personnel. Hemoglobin levels are tested to determine the presence and severity of anemia. BIOFHEMOLEVEL is a 3-digit variable with 1 implied decimal place.

For a summary statement of anemia status, based on grouped hemoglobin level results, see BIOFANEMIALVL (V457).
