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.

2017-2018 National Survey of Children’s Health (two years combined)
*2018 American Community Survey and ^Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System

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 health treatment or counseling. These measures link to the across-state estimate tables on the DRC’s Interactive Data Query.

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

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 health treatment or counseling. These measures link to the across-state estimate tables on the DRC’s Interactive Data Query.

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

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 health treatment or counseling. These measures link to the across-state estimate tables on the DRC’s Interactive Data Query.

Data Sources: National Survey of Children’s Health (Health Resources and Services Administration, Maternal and Child Health Bureau. https://mchb.hrsa.gov/data/national-surveys), except where indicated:
*Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS)
^American Community Survey (ACS)

Note:
Due to changes in the NSCH’s mode of data collection and sampling frame, as well as adjustments to item wording where necessary, it is not possible to compare estimates from the redesigned survey to those from previous iterations of the NSCH or NS-CSHCN conducted prior to 2016.
