Has condition information in round 6


For current conditions associated with a medical event or prescribed medicine during the year, where the person is in relative year 3 (RELYR), CONDRD6 reports whether the condition was first reported or selected in Round 6.

IPUMS MEPS reports the universe for each variable based on a thorough review of the original MEPS documentation. Investigating the data may reveal cases that do not meet the stated universe. Users are encouraged to validate universes for their analyses.

Starting in 2020, CONDRD6 and CONDRD7 were introduced due to an extended panel to adapt to changes from the COVID pandemic.

CONDRD6 can be used in conjunction with CONDRD1, CONDRD2, CONDRD3, CONDRD4, CONDRD5, CONDRD7, and CONDRN to determine when the condition was first reported and in which rounds the person was affected by the condition.

CONDRD6 is on the condition record (see RECTYPE for more details on the different record types in IPUMS MEPS). Variables offered on the condition record through IPUMS MEPS are derived from the Medical Conditions file provided by AHRQ. Please see our overview of the event, medical conditions, and prescribed medicines variables, including how those variables are offered through IPUMS MEPS, and general considerations to keep in mind when conducting analyses using these variables.

The condition may be reported or selected only when the person reports an event that occurred due to the condition. See the user note for more information on the criteria for records being included on the AHRQ Medical Conditions file.
