National Home Health Aide Survey (NHHAS)

http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/nhhas.htm

The National Home Health Aide Survey (NHHAS), the first national probability survey of home health aides, was designed to provide national estimates of home health aides employed by agencies that provide home health and/or hospice care.  NHHAS, a multistage probability sample survey, was conducted as a supplement to the 2007 CDC Home National Home and Hospice Care Survey (NHHCS).  Agencies providing home health and/or hospice care were sampled into NHHCS, and then up to six home health aides were sampled from eligible participating NHHCS agencies.
