NCHS Releases Latest NHIS Early Release DataNovember 16, 2021
The Early Release (ER) Program of the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) provides estimates, analytic reports, and preliminary microdata files on an expedited schedule. NHIS data users can have access to these very timely estimates, reports, and microdata files without having to wait for the release of the final annual NHIS microdata files by selected demographic characteristics.
One of the ER reports presents estimates of health insurance coverage for the civilian noninstitutionalized U.S. population based on data from the January through June 2021 National Health Interview Survey.
The ER program released preliminary estimates of the percentages of adults and children living in homes with only wireless telephones (also known as cellular telephones, cell phones, or mobile phones). These estimates are the most up-to-date estimates available from the federal government concerning the size and characteristics of this population.
ER also released quarterly and biannual health estimates on a variety of conditions. The data is available on interactive web dashboards at the following links below:
