An Overview of the NCHS Data Linkage Program: Leveraging the nation’s health data for evidence-based decision making

NCHS is actively working to expand the utility of its national health survey data by linking information collected in health surveys with other health related sources of data, including Medicare & Medicaid data, death certificates, and information on receipt of federal housing assistance.  This webinar includes a discussion of the Data Linkage Program including the data sources that have been linked and examples of how these linked data can help answer critical health policy questions.  The webinar also highlights the program’s data modernization initiatives as a part of the broader effort to expand current and relevant data to inform evidence-based decisions.
