Codes and Frequencies
INSHHANYMILIT indicates whether any member of the household is covered by a military health insurance program.
The information in INSHHANYMILIT is taken from the household record and applies to regular household members, 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.
