Design and operation of the National Survey of Children’s Health, 2011–2012

  • Description:
    Objectives: This report presents the development, plan, and operation of the 2011–2012 National Survey of Children’s Health, a module of the State and Local Area Integrated Telephone Survey, conducted by the National Center for Health Statistics. Funding was provided by the Maternal and Child Health Bureau, Health Resources and Services Administration. The survey was designed to produce national and state prevalence estimates of the physical and emotional health of children aged 0–17 years, as well as factors that may relate to child well-being including medical homes, family interactions, parental health, school and after-school experiences, and neighborhood characteristics. Methods: A random-digit-dial sample of households with children under age 18 years, comprising both landline and cell- phone numbers, was constructed for each of the 50 states and District of Columbia. Households were screened for children who lived or stayed in the household. If one or more children were identified, the interview was conducted for one randomly selected child. Respondents were parents or guardians familiar with the children’s health and health care. An additional sample was fielded in the U.S. Virgin Islands (USVI). Results: Excluding USVI, 847,881 households were screened from February 2011 through June 2012. Of these households, 187,422 reported age-eligible children living or staying in the household. Interviews regarding 95,677 eligible children were completed, including 31,972 from cell-phone interviews. The weighted overall Council of American Survey Research Organizations or CASRO rate for interviews was 38.2% for landline sample, 15.5% for cell- phone sample, and 23.0% overall.
