National Health Interview Survey: Call for Public Comment on 2018 Questionnaire Redesign



The content and structure of the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) will be updated in 2018 to better meet the needs of data users. Aims of the redesign are to improve the measurement of covered health topics, reduce respondent burden by shortening the length of the questionnaire, harmonize overlapping content with other federal health surveys, establish a long-term structure of ongoing and periodic topics, and incorporate advances in survey methodology and measurement.

The National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) invites data users to comment on the proposed redesign to the adult and child questionnaires. Comments may be submitted to healthsurveys@cdc.gov through June 30, 2016.

The full text of the Call for Public Comment can be viewed on the National Center for Health Statistics website.
