General impressions
The ATHIS is a health survey focusing on health and disability of individuals, as well as on the use of health services and risk factors. There are no filter questions for the different modules; thus, individuals without chronic disease(s) are consequently asked questions about impariments of BFs and limitations of A&Ps. Participation questions are not asked.
It is almost similar to the EHIS but has questions about performance and capacity.
