Quality report of the second wave of the European Health Interview survey

The purpose of this quality report is to provide the users of the European Union Health Statistics with a tool for assessing the quality of these statistics which are based on the European Union Health Interview Survey (EHIS). The report provides a description of the methodology of the second wave of EHIS and an overview of the survey implementation by ESS countries between 2013 and 2015. This is followed by a presentation and discussion of the main quality indicators for EHIS wave 2 which, in this report, are: instruments and characteristics of quality management, accuracy and reliability of the survey sampling, timeliness and punctuality of the survey implementation and dissemination, and comparability and coherence of the survey results. The lessons learned can be used for the next round of EHIS wave 3 that will take place in ESS countries between 2018 and 2020.
