Description
  • Abstract

    The National Health Examination Surveys, Cycle I (NHES I), conducted during the period 1959-1962, were designed to secure statistics on the health status of the population of the United States. More specifically, their purpose was to determine the prevalence of certain chronic diseases, the status of dental health, and the distributions of auditory and visual acuity and certain anthropometric measurements. Included in this collection are responses to medical history questions that relate to diabetes, pertinent findings from a physical examination, results of a glucose tolerance test (GTT), and serum cholesterol values.
