The NHIS is a cross-sectional household interview survey that is fielded continuously throughout the year. A core questionnaire collected data on topics such as injuries, diseases, conditions, disability, limitation of activity, doctor visits, hospitalization, and demographic information such as housing, family composition, income, etc. Supplement sections for the 1994 NHIS included a wide variety of topics, including a Phase 1 supplement on disability for the National Health Interview Survey on Disability (NHIS-D). Two followback surveys were based on responses to the 1994 NHIS: the 1994-1997 Disability Followback Survey (part of Phase 2 of the NHIS-D) and the 1994 Access To Care Survey.
