The National Health Interview Survey Supplement on Disability (NHIS-D) represents an extraordinary accomplishment to which many people have contributed. The breadth of items collected from a nationally representative sample of persons with disabilities, of all ages, enables us to undertake many analyses that were not previously possible. Several examples of recently conducted analyses that were stimulated by federal policies and programs are discussed. The paper presents suggestions for facilitating additional analyses. Strategies and options for collecting data on persons with disabilities in the future are also discussed.
