The Hispanic Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (HHANES) was conducted from 1982-1984. Data was collected on the three largest Hispanic subgroups residing in three specific geographic areas: Mexican-Americans in five southwestern states, Cuban-Americans in Dade County, FL, and Puerto Ricans residing in the New York City metropolitan area. Participants were aged 6 months - 74 years.
Data from the HHANES were generally organized by the data collection method (e.g., Child Sample Person Questionnaire or Dental Examination). The data files comprising HHANES include a number of demographic and socioeconomic variables on each tape, including age, gender, ethnicity, income, education, and marital status.
