Archive of past Nurses’ Health Studies questionnaires

The chart below contains links to PDFs of all of the questionnaires from the Nurses’ Health Study and Nurses’ Health Study II, beginning with the initial questionnaire in 1976. NHS questionnaires are sent in even years, NHS II in odd years. Two special questionnaires on high school diet and stress were sent in 1998 and 2001 to NHS II participants.

We have two formats for the questionnaire, standard and short. The standard version includes questions on many aspects of lifestyle and on health status. The standard questionnaire is available in a regular-size font (Long questionnaire) and in large print (Booklet version). The shorter version of the questionnaire is mainly focused on health status (Short questionnaire).
