Summary:

The National Survey of Early Childhood Health (NSECH) was conducted by the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) using the State and Local Area Integrated Telephone Survey (SLAITS). This module provides national data on pediatric care with questions that focus on the delivery of medical care to families with infants and toddlers and the promotion of young children's health by families in their homes. Parents of more than 2,000 children were interviewed between February and July 2000. African-American and Hispanic children were oversampled to permit more precise estimates for these groups.
