Health Care

This is one in a set of three reports
summarizing data from the 2012
National Health Interview Survey
(NHIS). NHIS is a multipurpose health
survey conducted by the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC)
National Center for Health Statistics
(NCHS). This report provides national
estimates for a broad range of health
measures for the U.S. civilian
noninstitutionalized population. The
other two reports in this set provide
estimates of selected health measures for
children (1) and for adults (2). These
three volumes of descriptive statistics
and highlights are published for each
year of NHIS (3–5) and since 1997 have
replaced the annual, one-volume Current
Estimates series
