For adults 18 and older who completed the Social and Health Experiences (SHE) self-administered questionnaire (SDOHELIG), ECIGEV indicates whether the respondent has ever used an electronic nicotine product. ECIGEV was fielded as one of four questions about health and health behaviors included in the Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) supplement fielded via the 2021 SHE pencil-and-paper questionnaire. The SHE questionnaire was the first MEPS-HC questionnaire to be fielded using paper and web modes. Please see MODEXERDAYS for more information about the Health and Health Behaviors variables included in the SDOH supplement. Please see SATISFIED for more information on the SDOH supplement, including a complete list of variables fielded on the 2021 SHE.
