Resource: National Survey of Children’s Health October 2018 Fact Sheet

The National Survey of Children’s Health (NSCH), is funded and directed by the Health Resources and Services Administration’s (HRSA) Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB). Data from the 2017 NSCH is now available.  A brief overview of the 2017 NSCH, and new estimates of key child health indicators, are found in the NSCH Fact Sheet.

This voluntary survey, funded and directed by MCHB, provides annual national- and state-level estimates of key measures of children’s health and well-being. Anyone can access the data free of charge. HRSA works with the U.S. Census Bureau to conduct the survey, oversee sampling, and produce a final data set for public use.
