The National Survey on Children with Special Health Care Needs provides information on CSHCN in the 50 States and the District of Columbia. This section presents the survey’s findings for each State and D.C., including self-reported indicators of the prevalence of special health care needs among children in the jurisdiction as well as indicators of the impact of children’s conditions on their functional abilities, their health insurance coverage, access to care, family-centered care, and the impact of their conditions on their families.
The indicators of prevalence show the self-reported percentage of children who have special health care needs by age, sex, income level in relation to the Federal poverty guidelines, and race and ethnicity. In most States, however, prevalence is shown only among non-Hispanic White, non-Hispanic Black, and Hispanic children. For smaller racial/ethnic groups, data have been suppressed in most States to protect the confidentiality of the survey’s respondents. The exceptions are States with significant populations of Asian Americans, Native American/Alaska Natives, or Native Hawaiians or other Pacific Islanders.
The indicators of impact, access to care, health insurance, and family-centered care are shown for each jurisdiction in comparison with the National statistics presented earlier in this book.
