Suggested Citation Styles

Generally, data and materials produced by Federal agencies are in the public domain and may be reproduced without permission. Some materials are provided from existing publications. When this is the case, the publication should be cited if referenced. When citing information from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys (NHANES) that is outside a specific publication, we suggest the following citation styles.

For NHANES Data

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS). National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey Data. Hyattsville, MD: U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, [appropriate year][web URL].

For NHANES Survey Questions (or Examination Protocol or Laboratory Protocol)

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS). National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey Questionnaire (or Examination Protocol, or Laboratory Protocol). Hyattsville, MD: U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, [appropriate year][web URL].
