The Survey Orientation course for NHANES III includes one module:
Module 3. Data Structure & Contents
This module provides a general overview of NHANES III data structure and contents, as well as how they are different from continuous NHANES. This module is a supplement to the Continuous NHANES tutorial Survey Orientation course, which provides an overview of all NHANES surveys, and how to navigate the NHANES website.
Combined with knowledge gained in the Continuous NHANES tutorial Survey Orientation course, you will have a better understanding of how information is laid out on the NHANES website and how the NHANES III data files are organized.
Whether you are a novice or an experienced analyst, we recommend that you complete the basic tutorial on Continuous NHANES before beginning the supplemental tutorials.
