NOMs and NPMs from the Combined 2018-2019 National Survey of Children’s Health Are Now Available Through the Data Resource Center for Child and Adolescent Health
The Data Resource Center for Child and Adolescent Health (DRC), a project of the Child and Adolescent Health Measurement Initiative (CAHMI), under a cooperative agreement with the Health Resources and Services Administration’s (HRSA) Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB), is excited to announce the release of the National Performance Measures (NPMs) and National Outcome Measures (NOMs) data findings from the combined 2018-2019 National Survey of Children’s Health (NSCH) through the interactive data query on childhealthdata.org! The combined 2018-2019 NSCH is the third multi-year data set since the redesign of the NSCH in 2016 and includes data from 59,963 children ages 0-17 years.
The use of the combined data sets to produce state-level estimates is encouraged for NPM/NOMs where possible. The increased sample size from using multiple years of the NSCH allow Title V programs and researchers to produce more reliable national and state-level estimates, particularly for measures that are restricted to certain age ranges or subgroups (e.g. CSHCN). Click here to see the Guide to Multi-Year Estimates.Please note that “NPM 10: Adolescent well-visit” is not available in the 2018-2019 combined years data set due to a single year 2018 item change. This indicator will be reported with the 2019 single year data set and is comparable to 2016-2017 data. All other measures are available – see the DRC Interactive Data Query and the Changes to the Title V National Performance Measures and National Outcome Measures, 2016-2019 document for more information.
The remaining estimates of the combined 2018-2019 NSCH will be available through the interactive data query in November 2020, and downloadable data sets will be available in spring 2021. Single year 2019 NSCH estimates, downloadable data sets, and codebooks will be available through the DRC in late spring 2021. If you have any questions, please see the DRC FAQ, or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you contact us and you are a Title V leader, please be sure to include this information. Thank you.
