The Integrated Health Interview Series (IHIS) provides free online access to a half-century of consistently-coded data on child and adult health conditions, health care, and health behaviors. Based on the public use files of the U.S. National Health Interview Survey (NHIS), the IHIS project is carried out by researchers at the University of Minnesota with funding from NIH. IHIS includes thousands of variables on such topics as child mental health problems and treatment, use of complementary and alternative medicine by children, child disability, children with special needs, health conditions (e.g., autism, asthma, ADD, and hundreds more), general health, and use of medical services. The IHIS data extract system allows researchers to create a customized data file with the years and variables needed for their analysis, or data can be analyzed using an online tabulator.
