California Health Interview Survey releases newest data on state residents' health
Date:2/16/2011

Survey respondents include adults, teenagers and children from a broad range of ethnic groups and socioeconomic levels. As such, CHIS represents the most reliable source of data on the health of Californians, as well as on many little-studied ethnic groups.

Facts about the latest survey:

Big survey:

The 2009 survey is one of the largest CHIS surveys ever, with 49,811 households participating, including 47,614 adults and 12,324 teens and children.

Diversity:

CHIS has data on groups that are underrepresented in almost all other health surveys, including Latinos and Latino ethnic groups (including Mexicans and Puerto Ricans); African Americans; American Indians/Alaska Natives (both urban and rural); and Asians (Chinese, Filipinos, Japanese, Koreans, Vietnamese and South Asians). CHIS is conducted in English, Spanish, Chinese (Cantonese and Mandarin), Korean and Vietnamese.

Expanded cell-phone sample:

With more and more Californians using mobile devices, CHIS has expanded its cell phone sample to include not only children and teens, but people who mainly or only use mobile phones important factors in ensuring representative data.

Sexual minorities:

CHIS is one of the few surveys to collect information on lesbian, gay and bisexual Californians, providing a rich source of data on an underrepresented group.
