Lists, in abbreviated form, the questions asked and the frequency of coded responses for the Population Health Survey of New York City residents in 1969-1970. The Survey Research Center of the City University of New York performed most of the field work and coding, using cluster sampling in five New York City boroughs. The questions dealt chiefly with health conditions and use of health services, although there are also questions on many relevant sociodemographic characteristics of the respondents. Approximately 516 "columns" of information are available on 13,356 respondents. The codebook gives the meaning and frequency of responses to questions that are on magnetic tape. The marginals are not weighted in this report, although the weight column remains on tape. This work is designed to facilitate future analyses of the data as well as to provide a ready reference for rapid overviews of the status of health conditions and the use of existing services.
