“This report provides national estimates for a broad range of health measures for the U.S. civilian non institutionalized population of adults. The other two reports in this set provide estimates of selected health measures for the U.S. population and for children under age 18 years. These three volumes of descriptive statistics and highlights are published for each year of NHIS and, since 1997, have replaced the annual, one-volume Current Estimates series. Tables are presented here for selected chronic conditions, selected mental health characteristics, functional limitations, health status, health behaviors, health care access and utilization, and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) testing status. All estimates are derived from the Sample Adult Core Series 10, No. XXX 2/2014 3 component of the annual NHIS except for health status, which is derived from the Family Core of the NHIS.”
