HRSA Maternal & Child Health EnRICH Webinar – The National Survey of Children’s Health: New Data, Opportunities, and Directions
Measuring and tracking key indicators of health and well-being among children is critical to ensuring the nation is prepared to meet their health and developmental needs as well as to ensure the long-term health of the country. The National Survey of Children’s Health is the largest national survey of children in the US, providing point in time as well as trend estimates on a wide range of indicators related to health status and health services needs of US children, and the family and community factors that can impact those needs.
In 2022, the National Survey of Children’s Health finalized content for “Healthy and Ready to Learn” – the first standardized, multidimensional population level measure of school readiness among children ages 3-5 in the US. This measure, in concert with additional content newly added or under development and the implementation of state oversamples allows the NSCH to remain on the cutting edge of children’s health surveillance and research.
- Describe basic characteristics of the design and content of the National Survey of Children’s Health and how those characteristics impact the ability to address questions of interest related to children’s health and well-being.
- Report on 1-3 key estimates or findings from the National Survey of Children’s Health specifically related to the new measure for Healthy and Ready to Learn.
