NCHS Data Linked to Department of Veterans Affairs Administrative Data Files
NCHS has linked 2005-2018 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) and 2005-2018 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) to Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) administrative data through fiscal year 2020. Linkage of NCHS survey participants with VA administrative data provides the opportunity to examine a wide range of health-related topics for Veterans, including Veteran status and utilization of VA benefit programs.
