We discuss two approaches of integrating data from the National Immunization Survey (NIS)-a nationwide, list-assisted RDD survey conducted by the NORC for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention which monitors the vaccination rates of children between the ages of 19 and 35 months-and state immunization registries for purposes of assessing the differential quality of NIS estimates and registry data. One approach requests from the NIS sample consent to obtain immunization data from the state registry; the second draws an independent sample from the state registry and collects data under NIS interview process. In both approaches, state registry vaccination records are compared with those obtained from NIS providers. We compare vaccination up-to-date rates between these two approaches, as well as limitations and benefits of each approach, and implications for survey improvement.
