    The National Health and Examination Survey Cycle III (NHES III), conducted during the period 1966 to 1970, collected extensive data on youths, age 12 to 17. The information covers personal and demographic characteristics, medical and dental history, and health habits and behavior. Data were collected from parents, schools, birth certificates, psychological exams, physician's exams, and dental exams. Test results from vision, ear, nose, throat, hearing, blood pressure, bone age, body measurement, and certain x-ray and laboratory tests are included.
