Excerpt
Introduction: The second National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey is another in a series of related programs carried out over the past 20 years by the National Center for Health Statistics. These programs, authorized by Congress under the National Health Survey Act of 1956, are characteristically national in scope, based on probability sampling, and used to collect a broad range of morbidity data and related health information. The essential differentiating characteristic of the health examination surveys is their primary concern with those kinds of healthrelated data obtained only (or at least optimally) from specially standardized direct medical examinations, including tests and other procedures used in clinical practice. Such examinations given to persons selected in the scientific sample permit estimates of the prevalence of specifically defined diseases in the U.S. population, including cases not previously identified. They also permit estimation of the distribution within the population of a broad variety of health-related measurements, including not only physical measurements such as height, weight, and various skinfolds, but also physiological measurements, such as diastolic blood pressure and serum cholesterol level and psychological measurements.
