Besides the variable for limitations with IADL, are there any other variables from the IADL scale in the dataset?

I am trying to develop a study using the NHIS and the ADL, IADL scales. I am unable to find variables corresponding to the IADL scale. Is it limited to the one question about limitations with IADLs?

Do you have the same question? Follow this Question

The other IADL variables available on IPUMS Health Surveys include: difficulty preparing meals (FLMEALYN), difficulty managing money (FLMONYYN), difficulty using phone (FLPHONYN), difficulty doing heavy housework (FLHVWKYN), difficulty shopping (FLSHOPYN), and difficulty doing light housework (FLLITWKYN). These are all yes/no variables and are quite limited in their availability. There are a number of other variables relating to limitations, listed under the person-level limitations tab.
