Hi, I was doing research for a project on headaches and thought I would try this portal. I admit, I am new to this but it looked intuitive enough that I didn't feel like I was missing something...until I was. I don't see any data on headaches? Why? Now, I'm willing to admit that maybe I put in an incorrect term. I searched for "headache/s" as that seemed a good start, but nothing came up. So, is it that I searched incorrectly or that you don't have data specifically about headaches, or some third reason I'm not sure how to verbalized? Please advise, as this may become a story in itself for me to share.
Thanks.

Hello,

Here are a few suggestions for data about headaches.

  1. National Health Interview Survey – representative sample of health conditions in the US population – search keyword “headache” for data tables aggregated by factors including sex, age, race, education, and more. https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/nhis/shs/tables.htm
  1. Beyond the NHIS data, some historical Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System data sets have questions related to headache [0] and the most recent is 2012 [1]:
  1. National Library of Medicine PubMed Literature – https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/
  2. NIH also gives out research grants to work on headaches/migraines. You can click on “headaches” on this site and see the listing of research, the abstract, and the Principal Investigator: https://report.nih.gov/categorical_spending.aspx

Hope this helps. Please let us know if you have further questions.
