NCHS Data Linked to HUD Housing Assistance Program Files
NCHS has linked 1999-2018 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) and 1999-2018 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) to administrative data through 2019 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.
