Specifications include, but are not limited to:The Institute for Health Policy (IHP) at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston School of Public Health (UTSPH) will be conducting the second round of the Health of Houston Survey (Survey 2016), a comprehensive health survey of Harris County (Texas) residents. The first Health of Houston Survey was conducted in 2010-2011. Survey 2016 will collect data to (1) support community-level planning activities and evaluation efforts, (2) assist communities and the organizations that serve them, in priority setting, and (3) empower individuals and organizations to advocate for their communities and pursue funding opportunities. Survey 2016 will continue to improve upon the available administrative data by adding health-related information from an address-based, representative sample of adult residents living in households and will allow us to benchmark current health indicators at a sub-county level against those collected in 2010. Major content areas covered in the survey will include heath status and chronic conditions, health risk behaviors, health care access and health insurance coverage, preventive services, psychosocial factors and neighborhood characteristics. The survey will be administered in two languages, English and Spanish, and in telephone (CATI) and web versions. Survey 2016 will collect health information on both adults and children (by adult proxy) residing in Harris County and the City of Houston. The 2010 survey, methods, questionnaire and data can be found at SampleThe purpose of Survey 2016 is to collect a variety of health-related information from a random sample of approximately 4.3 million area residents. The principal goals of Survey 2016 are to produce reliable and unbiased countywide estimates for the total population of Harris County and for 7 geographic subcounty aggregations, corresponding to our aggregations of U.S. Census 2010 PUMAs (Public Use Microdata Areas) (Exhibit 1a and 1b), as well as:its main ethnic/racial groups (i.e., Whites, Hispanics, African-Americans, and Asians),subpopulations in three income groups; residents at or below federal poverty level (FPL), residents between FPL and 200 percent FPL, and residents at above 200 percent FPL, andsubpopulations in three age groups; from 0-17 years old, between 18-64 years old and 65 years old and over (number of interviews completed by respondents above 65 years old should be capped to preserve its proportionality to other age groups in the real population estimates).
