NHANES Webinars

Population-Based Survey Experience in Multimode Health and Nutrition Data Collection

National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) hosted a webinar with state and local-level survey programs to discuss experiences in multimode health and nutrition data collection. Multimode data collection can include interviews, physical assessments, and biospecimen collection.

The webinar addresses topics such as innovative data collection, including novel survey measurements and meaningful community engagement. The collaborative discussions will generate ideas to improve survey participant experience, response rates, efficiency, and outreach.

Hear experience from the following presenting programs:

    • National Center for Health Statistics for NHANES;
    • University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio and University of Alabama Birmingham for The Risk Underlying Rural Areas Longitudinal (RURAL) Cohort Study;
    • University of Wisconsin-Madison for The Survey of the Health of Wisconsin (SHOW); and

NCHS Webinar: National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey 2017 – March 2020 Pre-pandemic Data Release

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2019-2020 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) suspended data collection in March 2020, before the full two-year data collection was completed. As a result, the National Center for Health Statistics merged the 2019–March 2020 NHANES data with the 2017–2018 NHANES data to create a special pre-pandemic data set. The pre-pandemic data set provides nationally representative estimates on selected health outcomes.

This webinar provides an overview of this unique data release from NHANES, describing differences between this data file and previous NHANES releases, intended uses of the file, and prevalence estimates for health outcomes featured in the report accompanying the data release.
