Progress on the Redesign of the NSCH and the Data Resource Center. Year Developed: 2015. Source: U.S. Maternal and Child Health Bureau. Presenter(s): Rheem Ghandour, DrPH, MPA; Christina Bethell, PhD, MBA, MPH. Type: Webinar Archive. Level: Intermediate. Length: 60 minutes.

Annotation: The National Survey of Children’s Health (NSCH) is funded and directed by MCHB with data collection coordinated by the U.S. Census Bureau. The survey examines the physical and emotional health of children from birth through 17 years of age with emphasis on factors that may be related to the well-being of children, including medical homes, family interactions, parental health, school experiences, and neighborhood safety. It has been redesigned, and will now also include new and revised content on a range of topics, including items of special relevance to Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs and their families. The speakers will give an overview of the new NSCH as well as show how the Data Resource Center (DRC) resources can help optimize the use of the NSCH as well as other data on child and family health.
