- Linking Up With the NCHS RDC
Our most recent blog post takes a closer look at the 2012 publications from work done at the Research Data Center. Check it out and be sure to check back for future blogs from RDC staff, researchers, and other NCHS divisions.
New Data Available through the RDC
National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES)

A preliminary microdata file for the January–September 2012 National Health Interview Survey is now available through the Research Data Centers. NHIS data users can analyze this file without having to wait for the final annual NHIS microdata files to be released (expected around June).
State and Local Area Integrated Telephone Survey (SLAITS)
