National Survey Publications and Chartbooks

Funded and directed by MCHB and conducted by CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics, the National Survey on Children’s Health and the National Survey on Children with Special Healthcare Needs provide rich data on multiple aspects of children’s lives—including physical and mental health, access to quality health care, and the child’s family, neighborhood, school, and social circumstances.

In the past, we have conducted each survey every four years. Going forward, the surveys will be combined into a single, redesigned survey conducted annually. Both the content and the methods used in the combined survey will be refined through 2016, with the first public release of data planned for Spring/Summer 2017.
