National Survey of Children's Health, 2011/2012

Child and Family Health Indicators Customizable Profile

The 2011/12 NSCH Customizable Profile allows users to view data from the National Survey of Children's Health (NSCH) through the lens of several common public health frameworks. The purpose of this tool is to match the NSCH’s national and state-level measures and data to these common frameworks. (Please note: Two frameworks – the Healthy People 2020 framework and the Title V measures – were specifically designed to use the NSCH to measure their objectives.)

This tool allows users to quickly access national and state-level population-based data most relevant to their framework of choice. This tool can assist with program planning, policy-setting, proposal writing, consensus-building, and much more.

To use the tool:
1) Select a framework of interest.
2) Once you select a framework, you'll see the NSCH measures relevant to your framework of choice appear.
3) Next, you'll have the option to select all relevant measures, or just the measures that are of greatest interest to you.
4) Last, for many measures, you'll have the opportunity to view the data by a variety of sub-populations, such as race/ethnicity, sex, income, insurance status, etc.
