Background and Brief Description

amended, authorizes that the Secretary of Health and Human Services 
(DHHS), acting through NCHS, shall collect statistics on the extent and 
nature of illness and disability of the population of the United 
States.
    The National Death Index (NDI) is a national data base containing 
identifying death record information submitted annually to NCHS by all 
the state vital statistics offices, beginning with deaths in 1979. 
Searches against the NDI file provide the states and dates of death, 
and the death certificate numbers of deceased study subjects.
    Using the NDI Plus service, researchers have the option of also 
receiving cause of death information for deceased subjects, thus 
reducing the need to request copies of death certificates from the 
states. The NDI Plus option currently provides the International 
Classification of Disease (ICD) codes for the underlying and multiple 
causes of death for the years 1979-2015. Health researchers must 
complete administrative forms in order to apply for NDI services, and 
submit records of study subjects for computer matching against the NDI 
file. A three-year Revision request is submitted to update the three
