NPHS (National Population Health Survey - Health Institutions Component - Longitudinal)

Description

The Health Institutions component started in 1994-1995 and has been conducted every two years. The first two cycles (1994-1995 and 1996-1997) were both cross-sectional and longitudinal. Beginning in Cycle 3 (1998-1999) the survey became strictly longitudinal (i.e. collecting information from the same individuals each cycle). After five cycles of collection, the institutions component has ended.

The NPHS Health Institutions component data are primarily used to study prevalence and incidence of disease, to make projections and perform demographic trend analyses. The data are used by the research community and other health professionals.
