|Title:||Taiwan Labor Survey: Health and Illness Supplement|
|Primary Investigator(s):||Directorate-General of Budget, Accounting, and Statistics|
|Abstract:||These are annual data from a Taiwan labor survey, which includes a health and fitness supplement. These data are similar to Current Population data from the United States. The file includes demographic characteristics on age, sex, marital status, relation to head. Economic variables include labor force status, hours worked, a series of questions on job search activities, information on primary and secondary job, and academic or professional specialty. There is no information on household, family, or personal income. Geographic detail includes region, city, and subdivision. |
The health and illness information in the file is quite rich and includes injury and illness information in the last month. Job and work site information when injured or ill are noted. Information on the treatment (type, where, who, cost, and source of payment) are provided. There are also a series of questions on hospitalizations and surgeries in the past year.
The file includes a combined file for 1981-1986 with year as a variable. The combined file has recoded variables to harmonize the coding differences. Separate files are also available for 1968, 1970-1975, and 1979. However, the documentation for these files is not complete. These are annual data from a Taiwan labor survey, which includes a health and fitness supplement.
