Title: 2016 Sample Redesign of the National Health Interview Survey
Author(s): Chris Moriarity* and Van Parsons
Companies: National Center for Health Statistics and National Center for Health Statistics
Keywords: sample survey

The National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) has undergone a sample redesign at ~10 year intervals after each decennial census. The current NHIS sample design began in January 2006 and will run through the end of 2015. Planning for the 2016 sample redesign began in 2012 when an interagency group (Census Bureau, National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS)) developed a redesign milestone schedule. A major change, relative to the last three NHIS redesigns, is the sample address source. The current method of field listing all sample areas is no longer affordable for the next NHIS sample design, so NCHS will be using addresses purchased from one or more commercial vendors (supplemented with a limited amount of field listing). We describe the research undertaken to guide the implementation of the sample redesign.
