NOTES: Chronic health conditions, except for asthma, were determined by asking if a doctor or health professional ever told the respondent that he or she had a specified condition. Current asthma was determined by asking if a doctor or health professional ever told the respondent he or she had asthma and whether the respondent still had asthma. The health measure, three or more chronic conditions, includes three or more of the following conditions: hypertension, heart disease, stroke, emphysema, diabetes, cancer, arthritis and related diseases, or current asthma. Heart disease includes coronary heart disease, angina or angina pectoris, heart attack or myocardial infarction, and any other kind of heart condition or heart disease. Diabetes includes all types with the exception of diabetic conditions related to pregnancy. Cancer includes all types with the exception of non-melanoma skin cancer. Arthritis includes arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, gout, lupus, or fibromyalgia. Percent of poverty level is based on family income and family size and composition using U.S. Census Bureau poverty thresholds. Missing family income data were imputed for 37% of adults 45 years of age and over in 2004. See Appendix II, Condition; Family income; Poverty.
