The Community Health Survey (CHS) includes self-reported data from adults, ages 18 and older.
CHS has included adults with landline phones since 2002 and, starting in 2009, also has included adults who can be reached by cell-phone.
Starting in 2011, CHS weighting methods were updated to use Census 2010 and additional demographic characteristics (methodology report [PDF]).
