National Survey of Children's Health, 2007 (ICPSR 28121)
The National Survey of Children's Health, 2007, funded by the Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB), Health Resources and Services Administration, is a module of the State and Local Area Integrated Telephone Survey (SLAITS) conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS).
The National Survey of Children's Health (NSCH) was designed to produce national and state-specific prevalence estimates for a variety of physical, emotional, and behavioral health indicators and measures of children's experiences with the health care system. The survey was conducted to assess how well each state, and the nation as a whole, met MCHB's strategic plan goals and national performance measures. These goals include providing national leadership for maternal and child health, promoting an environment that supports maternal and child health, eliminating health barriers and disparities, improving the health infrastructure and systems of care, assuring quality care, working with states and communities to plan and implement policies and programs to improve the social, emotional, and physical environment, and acquiring the best available evidence to develop and promote guidelines and practices to assure a social, emotional, and physical environment that supports the health and well-being of women and children. The NSCH addresses a variety of physical, emotional, and behavioral health indicators and measures of children's health experiences with the health care system. The survey also includes an extensive battery of questions about the family, including parental health, stress and coping behaviors, family activities, and parental concerns about their children, as well as their perceptions of the child's neighborhood. Demographic information collected includes race, gender, family income, and education level.
