Living quarters in NHIS

Hello! Is it possible for you to provide more detail about the living quarter's NHIS variable option 'other group quarter' [value=55]. Do you know what 'other group quarters' includes? For instance, convents, institutions, additional places?

It would just be great to have all the available detail regarding this variable. Thank you!

According to the survey form for this question, "other group quarters" indicates that the household is a group quarters unit, but is not described by the given bins: "Quarters not HU in rooming or boarding house", "Unit not permanent in transient hotel, motel. etc.", "unoccupied site for mobile home, trailer, or tent", or "Student quarters in college dormitory". Therefore, it seems this category could include convents and institutions.
