The National Survey of Children’s Health (NSCH) is a mail and web survey conducted to provide information about the physical and emotional health of children under the age of 18 living in mailable residential housing units in the United States. Since the target population for the survey is restricted to households with children, methods were developed to maximize the number of households with children and minimize the number of households without children in the selected sample. A variety of sources, including administrative records data, were used to identify households with a high probability of having children. Variable sampling rates were determined at the state and stratum level to meet the specified design goals. This paper describes these and other aspects of the sample design of the 2018 NSCH.
