The National Survey of Children's Health

The National Survey of Children’s Health (NSCH) touches on multiple, intersecting aspects of children’s lives. The survey includes physical and mental health status, access to quality health care, as well as information on the child’s family, neighborhood and social context.

The Data Resource Center takes the results from the NSCH and makes them easily accessible to parents, researchers, community health providers and anyone interested in maternal and child health. Data on this site are for the nation and for each state plus the District of Columbia. State and national data can be further refined to assess differences by race/ethnicity, income, special health care needs status and a variety of other important demographic and health status characteristics.
