|Abstract:||The National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), Division of Health Examination Statistics (DHES), part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), has conducted a series of health and nutrition surveys since the early 1960's.The most recent NHANES began in 1999. Every year, approximately 7,000 individuals of all ages are interviewed in their homes; of those interviewed, approximately 5,000 complete the health examination component of the survey. A majority of the health examinations are conducted in mobile examination centers (MECs); the MECs provide an ideal setting for the collection of high quality data in a standardized environment. In addition to the MEC examinations, a small number of survey participants (SPs) receive an abbreviated health examination in their homes because they are unable to come to the MEC.|
