Dear Partners and Colleagues,

The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) announces that data from the 2017 National Survey of Children’s Health (NSCH) is now available.  A brief overview of the 2017 NSCH, and new estimates of key child health indicators, are found in the NSCH Fact Sheet (attached below).

This voluntary survey, funded and directed by HRSA’s Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB), provides annual national- and state-level estimates of key measures of children’s health and well-being. Anyone can access the data free of charge. HRSA MCHB works with the U.S. Census Bureau to conduct the survey, oversee sampling, and produce a final data set for public use.
