The mission of the Data Resource Center (DRC) is to take the voices of parents, gathered through the National Survey of Children’s Health (NSCH) and the National Survey of Children with Special Health Care Needs (NS-CSHCN), and share the results through this free online resource. Easy access to children's health data allows researchers, policymakers, family advocates and consumers to work together to promote a higher quality health care system for children, youth and families.

*NEW* The surveys are being redesigned! The National Survey of Children with Special Health Care Needs (NS-CSHCN) and the National Survey of Children’s Health (NSCH) are being redesigned and will become a single survey, the National Survey of Children’s Health (NSCH), that will be conducted annually. Both the content and methodology of this combined survey will be refined through 2016 to ensure that it meets the needs of data users. The first public release of data is scheduled for Spring 2017. Stay tuned and find future updates here.
