Health Surveys Data Linkage


Ongoing research banner

PD&R has a memorandum of understanding with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS). Per the MOU, HUD has agreed to geocode NCHS survey responses. In return, NCHS has agreed to link administrative records for HUD-assisted individuals with respondents to the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) and the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES). These national surveys provide timely information on a range of health indicators, including health status and access to health care. HUD and NCHS has already released linked data for the following survey years: 1999-2018. Several publications using the linked data have already been published and a number of research projects are pending publication.

Note: The status of this project is ongoing.
