During the last 12 months, have you experienced…
For this set of questions, the interviewer must read out a series of symptoms and determine if the respondent had any of those symptoms in the last 12 months. The point of asking symptom-related questions is to screen those individuals who might have a specific health condition or disease. Because there could be a number of symptoms that characterise a given health condition, and because some symptoms may be common to different conditions, it is important that the interviewer probe for each symptom to see whether the respondent may have an active disease. It is also important that the time period for the symptoms (in the last 12 months) be clearly understood by the respondent and not confused with other time frames used in this section (such as "ever" and "the last 2 weeks").
Some individuals who are suffering from angina pectoris may get chest pain not only during an increased physical activity but also at rest or a mild physical activity (such as walking at an ordinary pace on level ground, etc).
If Q6012 and Q6013 No: Go to Q6017.
Question post text
If the respondent has neither exertional pain nor pain at rest or mild physical activity (questions Q6012 and Q6013), then questions Q6014, Q6015, and Q6016 should not be asked.
