Summary:

Information for all examined sampled persons in each of these National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys (NHANES I) was obtained by means of a household interview, a general medical history, a 24-hour dietary intake recall interview, a food frequency interview, a food program questionnaire, a general medical examination, dental, dermatological and ophthalmological examinations, anthropometric measurement, hand-wrist x-rays (of persons ages 1-17 only) and 24 hematological, blood chemistry, and urological laboratory determinations. In addition to this information, some respondents were given more specific tests such as x-rays of the chest and hip and knee joints, audiometry, electrocariography, goniometry, spirometry, pulmonary diffusion and tuberculin tests, and additional laboratory determinations. This data set contains demographic characteristics for 6913 examinees ages 25-74 who had received the detailed examination during NHANES I. Additional information includes their lung and heart size measurements, three expert x-ray readings for lung and heart pathology, pulmonary diffusion measurements, and tuberculin test results.
