DAMACENA, Giseli Nogueira et al. The Development of the National Health Survey in Brazil, 2013. Epidemiol. Serv. Saúde [online]. 2015, vol.24, n.2, pp.197-206. ISSN 1679-4974.

This study aims to report on both the preparatory phase of the National Health Survey (PNS) and the experience of implementing it in practice, in order to contribute to the development and improvement of the methodology used in preparing population health surveys in Brazil. PNS preparation began in 2009 and its development included a comprehensive consultation process involving researchers and representatives from Ministry of Health technical areas. From September 2012 to June 2013, the questionnaire was tested and the pilot study was carried out. Field staff were trained following PNS approval by the National Research Ethics Committee in July 2013. Fieldwork began in August 2013 and lasted for six months. The first results were published in December 2014 focusing on population lifestyles, self-rated health and chronic diseases.
