  • Description:
    " Objective: This report presents the development, plan, and operation of the National Survey of Adoptive Parents (NSAP), a module of the State and Local Area Integrated Telephone Survey conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Health Statistics. NSAP was designed to produce national estimates of the characteristics, health, and well-being of adopted children and their families, the preadoption experiences of the adoptive parents, and their access to and utilization of postadoption supports and services. Funding for the survey was provided by the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation and the Administration for Children and Families, both of the Department of Health and Human Services. Methods: The National Survey of Children’s Health, 2007 (NSCH) was a randomdigit-dial telephone survey of households with children under age 18 years. In households with more than one child, one child was randomly selected to be the subject of the interview. Children identified as adopted, who did not live with a biological parent and who lived in households where English was spoken, were eligible for the NSAP follow-up interview. The NSAP interview was a call-back scheduled at the end of the NSCH telephone interview. Sampled children included those adopted from other countries, from the U.S. foster care system, and from private domestic sources. Respondents were either the adoptive mother or the adoptive father. Results: A total of 2,089 NSAP interviews were completed from April 2007 to July 2008. The interview completion rate (i.e., cooperation rate) for eligible respondents was 74.4%. The overall response rate, taking into account nonresponse to NSCH, was 34.6%." - p. 1
