Interviewer instructions
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.
