Review Measure

Essential Measures are only those items that are critical to the collection of the Measure or are necessary for the interpretation of results. Essential Measures are integral to the Measure. Without such information the data collected would be incomplete and/or misleading.
An additional PhenX Measure that the user may find helpful based on the selection of a particular PhenX Measure. Related PhenX Measures can include additional Measures that are needed to calculate a Derived Variable (e.g., Weight and Height are needed to calculate BMI), Measures that are commonly used in presentations and publications to present the value of the chosen Measures (e.g., Height and Weight by Race and Ethnicity), Measures that are conceptually related to the chosen Measure (e.g., Current Educational Attainment is conceptually related to Annual Family Income and Arm Span is conceptually related to Height), Measures that are physiologically and/or biologically related to the chosen Measure (e.g., Stroke and Heart Disease). Related PhenX Measures are suggestions only.
The Collections are an alternative to the research domains for browsing the PhenX Measures. Measures that are related by a specific topic are grouped together.

Measure: Characteristics of Current Residence   #060100


Questions about the characteristics of the current residence.


Generally, people spend a large proportion of their days inside and at home. These questions provide information about a person’s home environment. They include characteristics about the age of the home, length of time in the home (length of time exposed to home-related exposures), use of a garage (e.g., carbon monoxide or benzene exposure), heating source and HVAC system (particulate matter and ventilation), water damage (mold), and presence of pets (allergens or contaminated dust). Taken together, these questions provide valuable information about factors that may affect the health or physiologic responses or epigenetic markers of those who live in the residence.
