With the release of data from the 2009/10 National Survey of Children with Special Health Care Needs, the comparison of indicators across time—from the 2001, 2005/06 and 2009/10 implementations of the survey—are now possible. Additionally, data can be compared between the 2003 and 2007 National Survey of Children's Health.

   What determines whether a question can be compared across survey years?

  • In order to compare data across multiple years, the question and response options must be identical. Changes in the overall content of the question, the specific wording of the question, or response options can result in changes in overall prevalence and interpretation of the survey item; therefore, comparison across survey years is not available for all measures.
