NCHS Data Linked to HUD Housing Assistance Program Files

NCHS has linked 1999-2012 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) and 1999-2012 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) to administrative data through 2014 for the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) largest housing assistance programs: the Housing Choice Voucher program, public housing, and privately owned, subsidized multifamily housing. Linkage of NCHS survey participants with HUD administrative records provides the opportunity to examine relationships between housing and health.
