Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2019-2020 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) suspended data collection in March 2020, before the full two-year data collection was completed. As a result, the National Center for Health Statistics merged the 2019–March 2020 NHANES data with the 2017–2018 NHANES data to create a special pre-pandemic data set. The pre-pandemic data set provides nationally representative estimates on selected health outcomes.
Join NCHS for an overview of this unique data release from NHANES. This public webinar—for researchers, students, policymakers, and health practitioners—will describe differences between this data file and previous NHANES releases, intended uses of the file, and prevalence estimates for health outcomes featured in the report accompanying the data release.
