ABSTRACT

Introduction: Few state or local health agencies have accurate local-level information on the prevalence of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality. The New York City Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NYC HANES) was designed as a new local surveillance initiative to determine the prevalence of health conditions among adult residents of New York City.

Methods: Modeled after the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, the survey was initiated in June 2004 as a population-based cross-sectional study of New York City adults aged 20 and older. The survey was designed using a three-stage cluster sampling plan; 4026 households were randomly selected. Selected households were visited, and residents were given an initial eligibility screening questionnaire. Eligible participants were asked to schedule an appointment at an NYC-HANES-dedicated health center to complete the NYC HANES. A completed survey was defined as completion of a demographic interview and at least one examination component. Health conditions examined included cholesterol levels, diabetes status, blood pressure, environmental biomarkers, depression, anxiety, and antibodies to infectious diseases.

Results: Of the 4026 households approached, eligibility screening questionnaires were completed for 3388 (84%) households, and 3047 survey participants were identified. Of the 3047 participants, 76% made an appointment, and 66% completed the survey. The overall response rate was 55% (n = 1999).

Conclusion: NYC HANES is the first successful local-level examination survey modeled on NHANES. With periodic repetition, NYC HANES will provide surveillance information on leading causes of morbidity and mortality.

Mentions: NYC HANES was designed as a population-based, cross-sectional survey of adult residents of New York City, using a three-stage cluster sampling plan (Figure). In the first stage of the sample design, 144 segments were randomly selected as primary sampling units from a sampling frame of 21,169 segments across the city. The segments are based on counts of households from the 2000 U.S. census (9) and consist of a block or a group of proximal blocks within a given census tract; each segment has a required minimal total number of households. The sample of segments was selected with probability proportional to a measure of size.
