About the National Data

There were changes to the wording of this question. Due to changes in the survey's mode of data collection and sampling frame, as well as adjustments to item wording where necessary, Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB) alerts data users that it is not possible to compare estimates from the redesigned survey to those from previous iterations of the NSCH or NS-CSHCN or to conduct related trend analyses. The redesigned NSCH will support trend analyses beginning with data from 2016.
