Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander (NHPI) - National Health Interview Survey (NHIS)

The survey collects information on health status and conditions, disability, access to and use of health services, health insurance coverage, immunizations, risk factors, and health-related behaviors. In 2014, about 4,000 additional households containing one or more NHPI residents will be added to the NHIS.

The NHPI NHIS is an unprecedented opportunity to collect rich and accurate information about the health of Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders in all 50 states. With the information collected, it will be possible for policymakers, community leaders, researchers and health professionals to understand NHPI health problems, strengths, and needs and to plan policies and programs to improve NHPI health and well-being.

Households selected for the survey will receive a letter that looks like this, NHPI NHIS Advance Letter [PDF - 109 KB].

A public use data file will be available in the Fall of 2015.
