The EUHSID (European Health Surveys Information Database) project maintained and updated a database of the characteristics of major Health Interview Surveys (HIS) and Health Examination Surveys (HES) in Europe. Its main objectives were to

  • Gather information on health survey design, questions and examination protocols
  • Follow the development of recommendations and new instruments or protocols for health surveys
  • Assess and enhance comparability of health surveys
  • Standardise health surveys at a European level

The EUHSID project was implemented by the Scientific Institute of Public Health (IPH) in Belgium and the National Institute for Health and Welfare (THL) in Finland, with financial support by Eurostat and the Directorate General for Health and Consumers (DG SANCO). Although the project has ended, the database is being kept online.
