Has (name) been very sick for at least 3 months during the past 12 months?
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.
By chronically ill we mean that the person was too sick to perform his/her normal activities at work or at home, such as cooking, cleaning, driving or participating in activities. Also, we are asking whether the person was sick for a substantial amount of time, specifically for 3 months or longer during the previous 12 months. The episodes of illness do not need to be consecutive.
