For sample adults interviewed in quarter 3 or 4, CMPSUPPORT reports whether the person feels they receive more, less, or about the same amount of social and emotional support compared to 12 months ago. CMPSUPPORT was introduced in 2020 to ascertain information about the receipt of social and emotional support in comparison to the receipt of needed support before the coronavirus pandemic.

NCHS added nearly 30 questions related to COVID starting in quarter 3 of the 2020 NHIS questionnaire, eight of which are asked of both sample adults and sample children. For the full list of variables, as well as information about COVID-related changes to the NHIS, please see the user note.
