Request a Data Set

As part of our mission to advance the use of child health data, the Data Resource Center for Child and Adolescent Health offers enhanced analytical data sets and codebooks based on National Survey of Children’s Health (NSCH), National Survey of Children with Special Health Care Needs (NS-CSHCN), National Health Interview Survey (NHIS), and Survey of Pathways to Diagnosis and Services (Pathways) interview data files provided to the public by the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) or the US Census Bureau

DRC Indicator Data Sets include all records and variables from the NCHS or Census Bureau public use data files for the surveys. Additional content includes dozens of variables corresponding to measures of children's health status, health care quality and system performance featured in the DRC online data query. Also provided when possible are variables used for DRC subpopulation comparisons and analyses by any state, District of Columbia or HRSA region. SPSS, SAS and STATA datasets are available, and variables are formatted and clearly labeled.

To request a data set and/or codebook from any NSCH, NS-CSHCN, NHIS, or Pathways survey, please complete a one-time registration and fill out the online data set request form.

Please note: The 2016 NSCH data sets and codebooks are temporarily unavailable to download due to a non-technical issue. We will re-post the data sets and codebooks as soon as possible. We apologize for any inconvenience. Please e-mail us at if you have any further questions.

Once we receive your request and Data Use Agreement, we will review your request form within 48 hours. You will then receive an automated e-mail letting you know that your data sets and/or codebooks are available for download on your My Requests page.
