National Health Interview Survey

National Health Interview Survey

The National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) has monitored the health of the nation since 1957. NHIS data on a broad range of health topics are collected through personal household interviews. For over 50 years, the U.S. Census Bureau has been the data collection agent for the National Health Interview Survey. Survey results have been instrumental in providing data to track health status, health care access, and progress toward achieving national health objectives.

In Progress: 2018 NHIS Questionnaire Redesign Planning

New in 2014: Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander (NHPI) NHIS
