|Always||Usually||Sometimes or never||Total %
|Children with special health care needs (CSHCN)||%||53.3||23.0||23.6||100.0

C.I. = 95% Confidence Interval.
Percentages and population estimates (Pop.Est.) are weighted to represent child population in US.
Please interpret with caution: estimate has a 95% confidence interval width exceeding 20 percentage points or 1.2 times the estimate and may not be reliable. For more information about the data suppression and display criteria click here.
CSHCN status is determined using a validated instrument for identification of children with special health care needs as defined by the federal Maternal and Child Health Bureau. The CSHCN Screener asks whether a child currently experiences a health consequence and, if so, whether that specific health consequence is due to a medical, behavioral, or other type of health condition that has lasted, or is expected to last, 12 months or longer.

The majority of measures have missing values for less than 2% (unweighted) of cases. This measure has missing values for >=2% of cases. To learn about the impact of the missing values on the population count estimates click here.
