Circle the code corresponding to the answer given. A person should be considered 'seriously ill' if he/she 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 of the previous 12 months. The episodes of illness do not need to be consecutive. If 'Yes', skip to OV8 to ask about support systems to households with children - A 'Yes' answer to this question means that there is at least one adult who died during the past 12 months, who was 18-59 years of age and had been seriously ill for at least 3 months. If 'No', continue with the filter in question OV5.
