Future Directions Where Is Nhanes Going from Here

As previously mentioned, beginning in 1999, NHANES became a continuous, annual survey in order to provide more timely data on the health and nutritional status of the population. In addition, NHANES will eventually be linked with other related health and nutrition surveys of the U.S. population, including the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Continuing Survey of Food Intakes by Individuals (CSFII). By combining and integrating the data from these extensive surveys, a more comprehensive evaluation of the current health and nutritional status of the U.S. population can be made.
