New Content and Proposal Guidelines

July 26, 2022


The Division of Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys has moved into the next phase of the 2024 NHANES redesign. If you have been invited to submit a full examination or laboratory proposal for consideration, please use these Proposal Guidelines.

At this time, we have not yet sent out invitations for submission of full proposals involving only questionnaire component(s). Anticipated timeframe for questionnaire proposal invitation is the second week of August.

If you have any questions about the Proposal Guidelines or the process, please email us at
