(1) The Ohio Family Health Survey (OFHS) was Ohio’s benchmark repeat-series population-based health research project,that began in 1998. Subsequent surveys were conducted in 2004, 2008 and 2010. Its mission was to inform state and local policy makers concerning the impact of health care reform strategies on the State of Ohio and its citizens. The OFHS survey data have been commonly used to assist local organizations with their community health planning needs and by organizations in preparing for various health care grants. The survey questions include health status, health care access, utilization, insurance status, and demographics of Ohioans. Sponsors of the OFHS have included the Ohio Departments of Insurance, Job and Family Services, Health, and Mental Health and the Health Foundation of Greater Cincinnati.
