General impressions
Parts of the Estonian Health Interview Survey are based on the English template of the EHIS. In contrast to the EHIS template (1) some of the disability questions were changed, (2) the response options of the disability questions were changed (to yes/no), (3) several questions about emotional and other mental functions and their impact on activities of everyday life were included, (5) the disability questions explicitly ask for capacity and performance, (6) new sections (e.g., reproductive health, social activities) was included.
