The Health and Well-Being of Children: A Portrait of States and the Nation 2007

UNSPECIFIED (2009) The Health and Well-Being of Children: A Portrait of States and the Nation 2007. Project Report. U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Washington, D.C..




While data sources exist to measure and monitor the health of children in the United States, few take into account the many contexts in which children grow and develop, including their family and community environments. The National Survey of Children’s Health (NSCH), conducted in 2007, addresses multiple aspects of children’s health and well-being- including physical and mental health, health care, and social well-being—as well as aspects of the family and the neighborhood that can affect children’s health, on both the national and State levels. The survey was supported and developed by the Health Resources and Services Administration’s Maternal and Child Health Bureau and conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Health Statistics.
