- If you are searching for information on NHANES data and variables (e.g., data files, variable names, background information), the following modules will be most useful:
- If you want to know how to build an NHANES dataset in SAS, start with the Preparing an Analytic Dataset series of modules.
- If you want to understand the complex survey design and how to correctly account for it in your analyses, you can go to the Survey Design Factors course.
