The Mexico National Health Survey (ENSA) 2000 was conducted in order to provide information on the prevalence and frequency of chronic health conditions and to collect information to aid in the evaluation of health services.

The data were collected through in-person interviews of children, adolescents, and adults within the home. Physical measurements of blood pressure, height, and weight were taken. Blood samples and urine samples were also collected. A sample of the household water was analyzed for chlorine content. The interview included the themes of demographic characteristics, health status, injuries, disability, maternal health, and the use of health services.

The sample size for this survey was 45,870 households.
