The NHANES I Epidemiologic Followup Study (NHEFS) is a longitudinal study of adults originally examined, measured, and interviewed in 1971-1975 as part of the first National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES I). The NHEFS was jointly initiated by the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), the National Institute on Aging, and other components of the National Institutes of Health and Public Health Service. The primary purpose of the followup study is to investigate longitudinal relationships between the extensive data on physiological, nutritional, behavioral, and demographic characteristics collected during NHANES I and subsequent morbidity or mortality from specific diseases and conditions. The 1982-1984 wave of data collection for NHEFS followed all medically examined respondents who had been 25 to 74 years in 1971-1975. The 1986 NHEFS wave focused on older members of the NHANES I NHEFS cohorts, those who had been 55-74 years of age at their baseline examinations in 1971-1975 and were not known to be deceased at the time of the 1982-1984 NHEFS. In the 1986 NHEFS, the surviving respondents were 65-89 years of age. Data were collected on changes in vital, health, and functional status and use of health care services that had occurred since the last contact, whether the contact was in 1982-1984 or 1971-1975. The vital and tracing status file documents efforts to trace all subjects who had been 55 years of age and over at NHANES I (N = 5,677) and ascertain their vital status and demographic data. Further data collection was aimed at the 3,980 subjects who were not known to be deceased by 1982-1984. Thirty-minute telephone interviews were conducted with either sample members (N = 2,558) or with proxies for the incapacitated (N = 469) and deceased (N = 581) subjects. Questions were asked on household composition, self-reports... Cf.:
