Health Care Access and Mental Health

To monitor trends in mental health, health insurance coverage, and problems accessing care, NCHS partnered with the U.S. Census Bureau on an experimental data system 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 scope of the impact of COVID-19 in the United States.

Information from NCHS’ survey systems will be provided as soon as available.
