2022 National Survey of Children's Health

The National Survey of Children’s Health (NSCH) is funded and directed by the U.S. Department of Health a¬nd Human Services, Health Resources and Services Administration, Maternal and Child Health Bureau (HRSA MCHB), and is administered by the U.S. Census Bureau. Between July 2022 and January 2023, participants were mailed an invitation to complete an online household screener followed by a child-level questionnaire using a secure and confidential website. Additionally, participants were provided the opportunity to complete a mailed, paper version of the household screener and questionnaire instead of the web-based materials. See the NSCH Methodology Report and Sampling and Administration Diagram for more information. Below is a guide to the questions asked on the household screener and the child-level topical questionnaires. As in previous editions of the surveys, some variables in the public use file may be recoded to ensure consistency and ease of use. These recoded variables will appear in the public use file but will not appear in the table below.

  SECTION 1: Initial Screener
  SECTION 2: Survey Questions   

SECTION 1: Pre-Survey Screener (Completed prior to full survey)

The screener is administered in advance of the full survey. It begins by asking an adult in the household if there are any children 0-17 years old in the home, how many children there are (TOTKIDS_R), what primary language is spoken (HHLANGUAGE), and and if the house, apartment, or mobile home is owned with or without a mortgage or loan, rented, or occupied without rent (TENURE). The # sign following each question number indicates which child in the household the response is referencing when there is more than one child in the household.

The following questions are then asked about each of the four youngest children living in the home:

  1. First name, initials, or nickname
  2. How old is this child? (C#_AGE_YEARS)
  3. What is this child’s sex? (C#_SEX)
  4. Is this child of Hispanic, Latino, or Spanish origin? (C#_HISPANIC_R)
  5. What is this child's race? [Mark one or more boxes] (C#_RACE_R)
  6. How well does this child speak English? [only asked of children 4+ years old] (C#_ENGLISH)
  7. Does this child CURRENTLY need or use medicine prescribed by a doctor, other than vitamins? (C#_K2Q10, C#_K2Q11, C#_K2Q12)
  8. Does this child need or use more medical care, mental health, or educational services than is usual for most children of the same age? (C#_K2Q13, C#_K2Q14, C#_K2Q15)
  9. Is this child limited or prevented in any way in their ability to do the things most children of the same age can do? (C#_K2Q16, C#_K2Q17, C#_K2Q18)
  10. Does this child need or get special therapy, such as physical, occupational, or speech therapy? (C#_K2Q19, C#_K2Q20, C#_K2Q21)
  11. Does this child have any kind of emotional, developmental, or behavioral problem for which they need treatment or counseling? (C#_K2Q22, C#_K2Q23)

If YES to any of items 6-9, two follow up questions are asked:

  • Is this because of ANY medical, behavioral, or other health condition?
  • Is this a condition that has lasted or is expected to last 12 months or longer?

If YES to 10, one follow-up question is asked:

  • Has his or her emotional, developmental, or behavioral problem lasted or is it expected to last 12 months or longer?
 

Respondents are also asked to provide basic information (age and sex) about up to six additional children in the household.  These data are used for statistical purposes only and are not released.


Once information on all children is gathered via the screener, one child from the household is randomly selected. The remaining questions of the survey pertain only to this randomly selected child.
