The NSCH data with updated weights (2021-2022 combined, 2022 and forward) can be found on the DRC’s NSCH data query page.

Data Source:

National Survey of Children’s Health, Health Resources and Services Administration, Maternal and Child Health Bureau.


Child and Adolescent Health Measurement Initiative. [Title of the document] [Insert name and year of survey]. Data Resource Center for Child and Adolescent Health supported by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB). Retrieved [mm/dd/yy] from [].

Data Alert! In 2024, the Maternal and Child Health Bureau and the Census Bureau revised imputation and weighting by race and ethnicity for the NSCH. The updated weights have not been applied to any of the estimates contained in this archived data query. The estimates from this query are not comparable to estimates produced using datasets with the updated weights available on the Census Bureau’s website. These estimates also should not be directly compared with estimates on the DRC’s NSCH data query page (2021-2022, 2022 and beyond) which have been updated with new weights.

The CAHMI’s DRC datasets for 2016-2021 have not been updated with new weights. The indicators and measures displayed on the DRC's interactive data from 2016-2021 NSCH can be recreated with updated weights by applying the codes available in the DRC codebooks to the updated public use files provided on the U.S. Census Bureau’s website. Please read the weighting revisions technical document for more information.
