Codes and Frequencies



Description

For persons who had schizophrenia, paranoid or delusional disorder, manic episodes or manic depression, major depression, severe personality disorder, Alzheimer's or other senile disorder, or other serious mental or emotional disorder in the past 12 months, who had ever seen a mental health professional or other health professional about this disorder, and who took any prescription medication for this disorder during the past 12 months, CMIMED2 reports the second type of medication that the person took for his or her disorder(s).

 

The interviewers first asked the respondent how many different medication(s) that the person took or had taken in the past 12 months for his/her mental disorder(s). After confirming the number of medication(s), the interviewers then asked if they could see the container(s) of the medications(s) or if the respondent could bring the container(s) to the telephone so that the interviewers could record the container label. If no container was available, the interviewers would then ask for the name(s) of at most three medications. Please refer to CMIMED1 and CMIMED3 for additional information.

CMIMED2 is part of the Mental Health Supplement in 1989 that collects information on the amount and distribution of illness, its effects in terms of disability and chronic impairments, and the kinds of services people receive.
