National Health Interview Survey on Child Health, 1988
Investigators: National Center Health Statistics

The 1988 National Health Interview Survey on Child Health (NHIS-CH) was conducted by the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), and cosponsored by the National Institute for Child Health and Human Development and the Health Resources and Services Administration. The U.S. Census Bureau directed field work for the survey. The National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) is a continuous, cross- sectional survey representing the household population of the United States. Each year the NHIS collects basic health and demographic information by face-to-face interviews with a sample of about 122,000 family members in about 47,000 families. For the 1988 NHIS-CH, additional information was collected for one randomly selected child 0-17 years of age in each NHIS sample household. Topics covered in the 1988 NHIS-CH interview included child care, marital history of the child's parents, geographic mobility, circumstances of the pregnancy and birth, injuries, impairments, acute conditions, chronic conditions, passive smoking, sleep habits, school problems, developmental problems, and use of health care services. The resulting data set for this survey includes 1,347 variables and 17,110 cases.
