Excerpt
The National Survey of CSHCN was conducted as a module of the State and Local Area IntegratedTelephone Survey (SLAITS). The SLAITS program, sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), is a broad-based, ongoing surveillance system available at the State and local levels for tracking and monitoring the health and well-being of children and adults. SLAITS uses the same sampling frame as the National Immunization Survey (NIS), which is conducted jointly by NCHS and the CDC’s National Immunization Program (4). The NIS is a large-scale random-digit-dial telephone survey that screens for the presence of young children in sampled households and collects vaccination history information for eligible children (5). The size of the NIS sample provides an economical opportunity to survey other populations in addition to the rare population that eventually screens into the NIS itself.
