  • Description:
    The Survey Content Brochure is a summary of the available 1999–2016 NHANES data.

    The National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) is a program of studies designed to assess the health and nutritional status of adults and children in the United States. The survey is unique in that it combines interviews with physical and laboratory examinations.

    The NHANES program began in the early 1960s and has been conducted as a series of surveys focusing on different population groups or health topics. The historical surveys are referred to as NHANES I, NHANES II, and NHANES III.

    In 1999, the survey became a continuous program that has adaptable components on a variety of health and nutrition measurements to meet emerging needs. The survey examines a nationally representative sample of about 5,000 persons each year. These persons are located in counties across the country, 15 of which are visited each year.
