Children with Special Health Care Needs in Context: A Portrait of States and the Nation 2007. The National Survey of Children's Health 2007
US Department of Health and Human Services
This chartbook uses the 2007 National Survey of Children's Health (NSCH) to report on recent findings on children with special health care needs (CSHCN) in the United States. The NSCH provides a unique view of CSHCN in the context of where they live, play and go to school. It also allows comparisons to children without special health care needs. The 2007 NSCH is a national, parent-reported telephone survey sponsored with funding and direction from the Health Resources and Services Administration's Maternal and Child Health Bureau and conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Center for Health Statistics. The survey, also conducted in 2003 and again in 2011, provides a consistent source of data on the health, community and family-related experiences of children with and without special health care needs in the nation and in each state. The 2007 version of the NSCH represents the most recent national and state-representative data about CSHCN and children without special health care needs (non-CSHCN). All of the estimates presented here are based on parents' reports, and only those differences that are statistically significant are included. This chartbook both reports on topics not addressed in other national surveys on CSHCN and provides a comparison of CSHCN in the United States to those children who do not have ongoing special health needs, with specific attention to the following focus areas: (1) Health Behaviors and Risks; (2) Insurance, Access and Quality of Care; (3) Home and Daily Routines; (4) Family Well-Being and Relationships; (5) School, Friends and Community; and (6) Summary indicators of health care quality, the home environment, and the neighborhood and school environment. In addition, the chartbook contains a State Data section which shows many indicators for each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia. Additional information about the chartbook's sources and analysis can be found in the Technical Appendix. (Contains 27 endnotes.)
