The 2004 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. In 2004, the survey focused on the health of minority ethnic groups. In comparison to previous years of the survey, there was a half size general population sample, and a boost of people from minority ethnic groups. Special topics included cardiovascular disease for the special sample, and respiratory health of children.
