EnRICH Webinar - The National Survey of Children’s Health: Current Opportunities and Future 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 (NSCH) is the largest national survey of children in the US, providing point in time and 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. The NSCH works to optimize its utility to a wide range of data users through multiple innovations, including the implementation of a Longitudinal Cohort to assess longer term impacts of Covid-19, state oversamples, and new content to assess emergent issues in child health.


At the end of this webinar, attendees will be able to:

• Describe basic characteristics of the design and content of the NSCH and how those characteristics may 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 NSCH; and

• Describe, in basic terms, at least 1 innovation being implemented as part of the NCSH
