Information about the history and methodology of the NHIS as well as copies of pieces of older questionnaires are found in two of the reports, No. 11 and No. 18. Some of the supplement questionnaires are not shown in any other NHIS report.
Injury and poisoning estimates from the NHIS are published in selected NCHS Series 10 reports, including “Summary Health Statistics for the U.S. Population” (published annually).
These reports preceded the Series 10 reports and are the earliest reports issued on the NHIS data. All of these reports contain estimates based on data from the period before 1963 for which there are no microdata files. Some of these reports focused exclusively on injuries and others included injuries as one type of many acute conditions.
This report series, introduced by NCHS in June, 2008, replaced the Advanced Data Reports series. Future reports may include injury- and poisoning-related topics.
Injury and poisoning statistics have been published in selected reports. Click on the link above and review report titles to identify reports of interest. This report series was discontinued in mid-2008 and was replaced with the National Health Statistics Reports series.
