  • Description:
    Background: California is the most populated state and Los Angeles County is the most populated county in the United States. National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) sample weights and variance units were developed for these places to obtain subnational estimates.

    Objective: This report describes the California and Los Angeles County NHANES 1999–2006 and 2007–2014 samples, including the creation of the sample weights and variance units and descriptions of the resulting data files. Some analytic guidelines are provided.

    Results: Eight years of NHANES data were combined for each data file to provide an adequate sample size and reduce disclosure risks. Because Los Angeles County has been a self-representing primary sampling unit, sample weights for Los Angeles County were relatively straightforward. However, a model-based approach was used to create sample weights for California. The relatively large proportion of Mexican-American and other Hispanic persons in California, coupled with the different NHANES 1999–2014 sample design requirements for oversampling these groups within the small number of NHANES locations selected each cycle, led to a relatively large size of these groups in the California and Los Angeles County NHANES files. For example, 1,137 and 374 of the 3,353 Mexican-Americans persons in NHANES 2007–2014 were in the California and Los Angeles County samples, respectively.

    Conclusion: The California and Los Angeles County NHANES 1999–2006 and 2007–2014 samples are available in the National Center for Health Statistics Research Data Center.
