2004 New York City Health and Nutrition Examination Survey

The New York City Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NYC HANES) is a community-based health survey conducted by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH). Data from the first NYC HANES were collected from June through December 2004. NYC HANES measured key health indicators in a sample of 1,999 randomly selected NYC adult residents through a detailed health interview and brief physical exam.

Designing and Implementing a Community HANES

To share the lessons learned in conducting the first ever community HANES (NYC HANES 2004) we created the document entitled " Designing and Implementing a Community Health and Nutrition Examination Survey: The New York City Experience ." In this document we present the rationale for conducting a community HANES, describe critical planning steps that precede implementation and discuss issues that might arise during data collection. In addition, this site contains much of the documentation used in implementing NYC HANES, including study protocols and procedures, training and outreach materials and other resources created and used during the New York City study.
