Health Care Access, Telemedicine, and Mental Health
As part of an ongoing partnership with the Census Bureau, the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) included select health-related questions on an experimental data product called the Household Pulse Survey. This 20-minute online survey was designed to complement the ability of the federal statistical system to rapidly respond and provide relevant information about the impact of COVID-19 in the United States. Data collection began on April 23, 2020 and currently follows a two-weeks on, two-weeks off collection and dissemination approach.
Tabulated data included problems accessing care due to COVID-19 by age, education, sex, race and Hispanic origin, and disability status. Questions were only included in Phases 1, 2, 3, and 3.1 of the survey.
