  • Description:
    The CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) is the nation’s principal health statistics agency, providing data to identify and address health issues. NCHS compiles statistical information to help guide public health and health policy decisions.

    Collaborating with other public and private health partners, NCHS employs a variety of data collection mechanisms to obtain accurate information from multiple sources. This process provides a broad perspective to help us understand the population’s health, influences on health, and health outcomes.

    The National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) provides information on the health status of the U.S. civilian non- institutionalized population through confidential interviews conducted in households. The NHIS is the nation’s largest in-person household health survey. It provides data for analyzing health trends, health status, access to and utilization of healthcare, health-related behaviors, and risk factors for racial and ethnic populations.
