The Health Resources and Services Administration’s Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB) is pleased to announce an upcoming DataSpeak program to present findings from the redesigned 2016 National Survey of Children’s Health (NSCH). The NSCH is funded and directed by MCHB, with data collection conducted by the Census Bureau. The survey examines the physical and emotional health of children from birth through 17 years of age. Emphasis is placed on factors that may be related to the well-being of children, including medical homes, family interactions, parental health, school experiences, and neighborhood safety. This DataSpeak will be one of the first public presentation on the most recent results of this important survey.

Presentations will be made by:

  • Reem Ghandour, DrPH, MPA, Director of the Division of Epidemiology in the MCHB’s Office of Epidemiology and Research, will present on the NSCH redesign and new estimates from the 2016 NSCH.

  • Jason Fields, PhD, MPH, Survey Director at the US Census Bureau, will present on the data collection methodology for the latest iteration of the survey.

  • Christina Bethell, PhD, MBA, MPH, Director of the Data Resource Center for Child and Adolescent Health, will present on how participants can jump start their use of the new NSCH data using the resources available on the Data Resource Center’s website.
