Excerpt
The National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys (NHANES) are designed to provide periodic information on the health and nutritional status of the civilian noninstitutionalized population of the United States. The survey program was begun in 1960 with three surveys of health status, the National Health Examination Surveys (NHES) (19–21). In 1970, an expanded nutrition component was added to provide data with which to assess nutritional status and dietary practices. At that time, the name was changed to the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (22,23). The NHANES III is the seventh and most recent NHANES.
