INSCOVSURG indicates whether surgery was a benefit covered by the insurance plan or mutual health organization of a household member.

The information in INSCOVSURG is taken from the household record and applies to regular household residents, not temporary visitors. Researchers may wish to exclude visitors using the RESIDENT variable (with visitors coded "2") when women, children, or births are the unit of analysis, and using the HHRESIDENT variable when household members are the unit of analysis.


INSCOVSURG has no comparability problems.
