Compare Data Across State Maps

The US state maps below compare each state’s performance to the national average on National Performance Measures (NPMs) and National Outcome Measures (NOMs) from the 2016 National Survey of Children's Health (NSCH).

To start, click on any measure below. Additionally, there are several other ways to view state-specific data on the DRC:

  • View the DRC's data snapshots to view topics in one state profile.
  • Use the DRC's interactive data query to access state data for hundreds of health indicators, and then sub-populate these results by a variety of demographic indicators such as race/ethnicity, income, sex, etc...
  • View the DRC’s hot-spotting tables to compare data for NPMs and NOMs across states.

Note: Maps for the following measures are not available because estimates for more than 50% of states have a 95% confidence interval width exceeding 20 percentage points or 1.2 times the estimate and may not be reliable: NPM 6: Developmental screening, NPM 9: Bully others, NPM 12: Transition (CSHCN), and NOM 18: Mental and behavioral health treatment. You can access data for all states by clicking on the link.

Data Sources: All NPMs and NOMs come from the National Survey of Children's Health, except where indicated:
*Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS), 2015
^American Community Survey (ACS), 2015

Due to changes in the survey’s mode of data collection and sampling frame, as well as adjustments to item wording where necessary, MCHB alerts data users that it is not possible to compare estimates from the redesigned survey to those from previous iterations of the NSCH or NS-CSHCN or to conduct related trend analyses. The redesigned NSCH will support trend analyses beginning with data from 2016.
