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, CMIMEDCON reports whether the prescription containers for mental disorder medications were available during the interview.

 

The interviewers first asked the sample persons how many different medication(s) that they took or had taken in the past 12 months for their 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 sample persons could bring the container(s) to the telephone so that the interviewers could record the container label.
