The 2007 NSCH tracks the prevalence and impact of a wide spectrum of health topics for children ages 0-17 in all 50 States and the District of Columbia.  Information from the survey is designed to assist states in child health systems planning, evaluation and program development, and to inform organizations that work directly with children and their families.

The NSCH is sponsored and designed by the federal Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB) and administered by the National Center for Health Statistics. The survey was conducted for the first time in 2003 and repeated again in 2007.
