NCHS Data Linked to Mortality Files

NCHS has linked various surveys with death certificate records from the National Death Index (NDI). Linkage of the NCHS survey participants with the NDI provides the opportunity to conduct a vast array of outcome studies designed to investigate the association of a wide variety of health factors with mortality.

Restricted-use Linked Mortality Files have been updated with mortality follow-up data through December 31, 2011. Public-Use Linked Mortality Files are available with mortality follow-up data through December 31, 2006. Updated Public-use Linked Mortality Files will be available in 2014.

 

NCHS Surveys Linked with Mortality Data:

  • National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) 1985 - 2009
  • National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys (NHANES) 1999-2010
  • Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES III)
  • Second National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES II)
  • NHANES I Epidemiologic Follow-up Study (NHEFS)
  • National Nursing Home Surveys (NNHS)
  • National Home and Hospice Care Survey (NHHCS) 2007
