The 2005 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 2005, the survey focused on the health of older adults. The sample was comprised of three components: a core sample of the general population, a boost sample of adults 65 and over, and a boost sample of children ages 2-15.
