Have you been taking any medication or other treatment for it (referring to the disease asked about in question Q6009) during the last two weeks?
Do not know
Warning: these figures indicate the number of cases found in the data file. They cannot be interpreted as summary statistics of the population of interest.
The purpose of this question is to find out if the respondent is currently under treatment for angina. The question should be asked to all respondents, regardless of the answer to the preceding two questions about diagnosis and past treatment. The question aims to separate those individuals who are under current treatment for a condition from those
who are not being treated. Note the time frame for this question (the last 2 weeks). An answer of “yes” is appropriate only if the respondent was taking medications for angina at any time during the last two weeks, and not if the person says he or she usually takes medications but for some reason did not during the given period.
