Version V1

The purpose of the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) is to obtain information about the amount and distribution of illness, its effects in terms of disability and chronic impairments, and the kinds of health services people receive. The National Health Interview Survey on Disability (NHIS-D) Phase I was administered at the same time as the 1995 NHIS core. The NHIS-D was designed to collect data that can be used to understand disability and to develop public policy on disability. Another goal of the survey was to find a balance among the medical, administrative, and social issues involved in disability measurement. The Phase I questionnaire gathered data on disability and was used as a screening device for Phase II. Part 1, Person Data, includes the following topics: sensory data, communication ability/limitation, mobility, developmental disability conditions, disability, functional limitations, mental health, services used and benefits received, and perceived disability. Part 2, Condition Data, provides information on the main condition causing the health problem, impairment, limitation, or disability.

In preparing the data files for this collection, the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) has removed direct identifiers and characteristics that might lead to identification of data subjects. As an additional precaution NCHS requires, under Section 308(d) of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 242m), that data collected by NCHS not be used for any purpose other than statistical analysis and reporting. NCHS further requires that analysts not use the data to learn the identity of any persons or establishments and that the director of NCHS be notified if any identities are inadvertently discovered. ICPSR member institutions and other users ordering data from ICPSR are expected to adhere to these restrictions.
