The NHANES is conducted by the NCHS, to provide national statistics on the health and nutritional status of the non-institutionalized civilian population through household interviews, standardized physical examinations, and collection of blood samples in special mobile examination centers. The present NHANES, started in March 1999, will be a continuous survey of 5,000 persons per year from 15 randomly selected locations throughout the US. The survey includes 18 components that measure the general health of the civilian non-institutionalized population and 74 laboratory analyses in addition to the HIV assay. Additional information and reports may be obtained from the NCHS web page at: www.cdc.gov/nchs.
