CHIS Questionnaires

Separate interviews are conducted for adults (age 18 and older), adolescents (age 12 through 17) and children (birth through 11 years of age). For children, we interview the parent or guardian in the household who is most knowledgeable about the child's health. Adolescents are interviewed directly about their health and behaviors, although their insurance information is collected from the adult.
