An Introduction to the National Nursing Assistant Survey

Publication Date

The National Nursing Assistant Survey is sponsored by ASPE; its design and fielding were made possible through collaborations with two independent research organizations and a sustained partnership with the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS). As the first in a series of papers produced by ASPE and NCHS, this report highlights relevant research that led to federal interest in sponsoring this survey, provides a comprehensive overview of the procedures undertaken, describes the advantages of combining establishment and worker surveys, and highlights the potential uses of these data. Subsequent papers will report on survey findings to inform improved planning, decision-making and policy development. [70 PDF pages]
