objectives
Objectives
  • To provide a brief overview of NHANES
  • To describe the planning process for NHANES 2005-2006
  • To provide collaborators with information about the research proposal preparation process
goals of nhanes
Goals of NHANES
  • Study the relationship of diet, nutrition and health
  • Explore emerging public health issues
  • Establish a national probability sample of genetic material for future research
nhanes sample design
NHANES sample design
  • Continuous data collection beginning in 1999
  • Multi-stage probability sample
  • Annual national sample of 7,000 interviewed and 5,000 examined persons
  • Estimates of population subgroups require two or more years of data

  • Coordinate NHANES Research Consortium activities
  • Prepare proposal guidelines
  • Solicit proposals
  • Coordinate review and evaluation of proposals
  • Decisions
considerations for topic selection and inclusion
Considerations for topic selection and inclusion
  • Safe, non-invasive procedures
  • Proven methodology
  • Prevalence of 5% or more
  • Feasible in NHANES environment
  • Funding available
proposal evaluation criteria
Proposal evaluation criteria
  • Methods clearly stated
  • Public health significance documented
  • Participant burden
  • Data uses outlined
  • Target group(s) identified
  • Data relevant across other NHANES topics
  • Confidentiality and disclosure issues addressed
analytic issues related to planning survey content
Analytic issues related to planning survey content
  • Cross-sectional design w/capability for longitudinal follow-up
  • Validated methods and data collection instruments used.
  • Ideally, a link between interview and examination content
  • Minimum 2-year data collection cycle
