General impressions
The Greek NHIS is based on the English template of the EHIS. It 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.

Example standard question: Do you usually have difficulty doing any of these activities by yourself? - Preparing meals
No difficulty = 1
Yes, some difficulty = 2
Yes, a lot of difficulty = 3
I can't achieve it by myself = 4
don't know = 8
refusal = 9
