Abstract: The National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey I Epidemiologic Followup Study (NHEFS) is a longitudinal study that follows participants from the NHANES I who were aged 25-74 in 1971-1975. The NHEFS surveys were designed to investigate the association between factors measured at the baseline and the development of specific health conditions and functional limitations. Follow-up data were collected in 1982-1984 (ICPSR 8900), 1986 (ICPSR 9466), 1987 (ICPSR 9854), and 1992. The 1992 NHEFS collected information on changes in the health and functional status of the NHEFS cohort since the last contact period. The Vital and Tracing Status file (Part 1) provides summary information about the status of the NHEFS cohort. The Health Care Facility Record files (Part 2 and 3) supply information about stays in hospitals, nursing homes, and mental health care facilities, as well as information abstracted from facility medical records. The Mortality Data file (Part 4) contains data abstracted from the death certificates for NHEFS decedents. The Interview Data file (Part 5) covers selected aspects of the respondent's health history, including injuries, activities of daily living, vision and hearing, medical conditions, exercise, weight, family history of cancer, surgeries, smoking, alcohol use, and medical care utilization.The National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, Cycle I (NHANES I) was designed to measure the nutritional status and health of the United States population aged 1-74 years and to obtain more detailed information on the health status and medical care needs of adults ages 25-74 years in the civilian noninstitutionalized population. Information elicited includes a detailed dietary interview, general medical histories and detailed histories of respiratory disease, cardiovascular disease, and arthritis, and health care needs. Additional information is obtained through a general well-being questionnaire, a general medical examination, dental, dermatological, and ophthalmological examinations, anthropometry, vision, and speech tests, X-rays of the hands, knees, hips, and chest, blood and urinary laboratory tests, electrocardiogram results, spirometry and pulmonary diffusion tests, and tap water samples. There were a total of 32,331 sample persons of which 31,973 were interviewed and 23,808 were examined. This series was formerly titled Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys I by ICPSR.
