In the 2007 NHIS on-line analysis system why does the variable "comtbnpain" only code for children

I was interested in examining the age distributions of the use of acupuncture, chiropractic and massage therapy for backpain. When I used the following variables (below) in the on-line analysis system for 2007 data, only children (4-17) used chirorpatic for backpain which is clearly incorrect. Any thoughts?

Row comtbnpain Used chiropractor for: Back or neck pain0-2 1
Column age Age0-85 1
Weight sampweight Sample Person Weight

The back pain variable that you used, COMTBNPAIN, is specific to sample children. For sample adults, you should use the back pain variable COMTBACPAIN.


Hope this helps.

Thanks. I would suggest that on the on-line system variable list you specify which are for children and which are for adults and which are for both,
