Abstract

The National Health Interview Survey on Disability, fielded between 1994 and 1997, was one of the most comprehensive and most complex surveys on disability ever conducted. This chapter describes the background of the NHIS-D, its design and contents, its technical characteristics, and initial efforts to disseminate its findings. It provides a basic background on the NHIS-D for readers of this volume, and provides analysts working with the NHIS-D insight into some of the design and development issues that have not been previously described in public documents.
