Data Resource Center for Child & Adolescent Health

The mission of the Data Resource Center for Child and Adolescent Health (DRC) is to advance the effective use of public data on the status of children’s health and health-related services for children, youth and families in the United States. The DRC does this by providing hands-on access to national, state, and regional data findings from large population-based surveys. Data are collected from parents and thus contribute a much needed voice in the drive to improve the quality of health care for children and youth.



The DRC website includes national and state-level data on hundreds of child health indicators from the National Survey of Children’s Health (NSCH) and the National Survey of Children with Special Health Care Needs (NS-CSHCN). You can browse or search by keywords and topics to retrieve interactive data tables and graphs which allow users to select, view, compare, and download survey data results for the nation, all 50 states plus the District of Columbia and the 10 HRSA regions.

These standardized national, state and regional level population data are specifically designed to assist states with child health needs assessment, program planning and evaluation, policy and standards development, monitoring, training, applied research and development of systems of care for children and youth.
