National Survey of Children’s Health

National Survey of Children’s Health.  This week, the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) announced release of data from the 2017 National Survey of Children’s Health with national- and state-level estimates of key measures of children’s health and well-being.  The annual survey is a joint effort by the U.S. Census Bureau and HRSA’s Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB).  Last week, MCHB announced $361 million to 56 states, territories and non-profit organizations through the Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting Program (MIECHV). Of the 888 U.S. counties served by the MIECHV program in 2017, fifty percent were rural.
