National Health Interview Survey on Disability (NHIS-D)

The NHIS-D was conducted by the National Center for Health Statistics as a supplement to the National Health Interview Survey, a nationally representative sample survey. The NHIS-D 1994-1995 was conducted in two phases. Phase 1 included a sample of approximately 203,000 individuals who were interviewed in 1994 and 1995. About 34,000 adults and children (20,000 in 1994 and 14,000 in 1995) indicated some form of disability, yielding a nationally representative estimate of about 42 million disabled adults in the household population (excluding people in long-term care facilities and prisons).
