The 2001 Health Survey for England included both an interview component with a self-completion element, and a nurse visit to take blood samples, blood pressure, and other measurements. This was the first year of the survey to include all ages in the sample, rather than just individuals ages two and over. In 2001, the survey focused on disabilities, accidents, and breathing and allergy problems. The consumption of fruits and vegetables was added as a new core topic.
