The National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) is a household survey that has been conducted by the U.S. Bureau of the Census annually since 1957. It is supported by the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS). The NHIS focuses on the civilian, non-institutionalized population in the United States. Each year the NHIS randomly samples approximately 48,000 households with 108,000 members from 201 primary sampling units nationally. The NCHS maintains an official NHIS web site.
