As part of its ongoing partnership with the Census Bureau, NCHS recently added questions to assess the prevalence of post-COVID-19 conditions, sometimes called “long COVID,” on the experimental Household Pulse Survey.
Today, NCHS released the latest round of Pulse data, collected from September 14-26, 2022. This latest release includes new data on how Long COVID reduces people’s ability to carry out day-to-day activities compared with the time before they had COVID-19.
