Task 1: Key Concepts About Navigating the NHANES Homepage

The main section of the homepage serves as an outline of the entire NHANES site. At the top and the bottom of the homepage are various links to the NHANES and National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) websites.  Some of these links and a few additional links are highlighted in the main section. In the “How to” portion of this task, you will explore the various links on this page and gain an appreciation for the number and diversity of materials available through the NHANES website.

This module does not provide an exhaustive explanation of all the web links. Instead, it will acquaint you with the website by providing an overall description and showcasing a few selected links with relevant information important to analysts.
