US Maps: Compare National Performance and Outcome Measures Across States

The US state maps below compare each state’s performance to the national average on National Performance Measures (NPMs) and National Outcome Measures (NOMs) from the National Survey of Children's Health (NSCH) and other surveys. Statistical tests for state-by-state comparisons require additional analysis. Click here to request a NSCH data set.

To start, click on any measure below.

2016-2017 National Survey of Children’s Health (two years combined)
2017 American Community Survey* and Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System^

Data Sources: All NPMs and NOMs come from the National Survey of Children's Health, except where indicated:
*Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS), 2017
^American Community Survey (ACS), 2017

Note: Maps for the following measures are not available because estimates for more than 50% of states have a 95% confidence interval width exceeding 20 percentage points or 1.2 times the estimate and may not be reliable: NPM 6: Developmental screening and NOM 18: Mental and behavioral health treatment.

2016 National Survey of Children’s Health
2015 American Community Survey* and Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System^

Data Sources: All NPMs and NOMs come from the National Survey of Children's Health, except where indicated:
*Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS), 2015
^American Community Survey (ACS), 2015

Note: Maps for the following measures are not available because estimates for more than 50% of states have a 95% confidence interval width exceeding 20 percentage points or 1.2 times the estimate and may not be reliable: NPM 6: Developmental screening, NPM 9: Bully others, NPM 12: Transition (CSHCN), and NOM 18: Mental and behavioral health treatment.

Note: Due to changes in the survey’s mode of data collection and sampling frame, as well as adjustments to item wording where necessary, MCHB alerts data users that it is not possible to compare estimates from the redesigned survey to those from previous iterations of the NSCH or NS-CSHCN or to conduct related trend analyses. The redesigned NSCH will support trend analyses beginning with data from 2016.
