Data Collection and Reporting

The article discusses the California Health Interview Survey (CHIS) redesign and stakeholder engagement in 2020. It describes data collection and data release adaptations CHIS made in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, considers the implications of these changes on data quality, and discusses future implications on data collection for population-based surveys such as the CHIS. The two principal objectives are strongly aligned with the policy data demands of understanding the unequal toll of the pandemic on California counties and on racial and ethnic groups.
