|Title:||National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) I: Epidemiologic Followup Study, 1992 [United States]|
|Primary Investigator(s):||Health and Human Services. National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS)|
|Abstract:||The National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey I Epidemiologic Followup Study (NHEFS) is a longitudinal study that follows participants from the NHANES I who were aged 25-74 in 1971-1975. The NHEFS surveys were designed to investigate the association between factors measured at the baseline and the development of specific health conditions and functional limitations. Follow-up data were collected in 1982-1984 (ICPSR 8900), 1986 (ICPSR 9466), 1987 (ICPSR 9854), and 1992. The 1992 NHEFS collected information on changes in the health and functional status of the NHEFS cohort since the last contact period. The Vital and Tracing Status file (Part 1) provides summary information about the status of the NHEFS cohort. The Interview Data file (Part 2) covers selected aspects of the respondent's health history, including injuries, activities of daily living, vision and hearing, medical conditions, exercise, weight, family history of cancer, surgeries, smoking, alcohol use, and medical care utilization. The Health Care Facility Stay files (Parts 3 and 4) supply information about stays in hospitals, nursing homes, and mental health care facilities, as well as information abstracted from facility medical records. The Mortality Data file (Part 5) contains data abstracted from the death certificates for NHEFS decedents.|
