The National Poll on Children’s Health (NPCH) is conducted 3 times per year to measure the opinions and viewpoints of approximately 2,000 U.S. households (with and without children) using innovative web-based technology. It is located within the Child Health Evaluation and Research (CHEAR) Unit of the University of Michigan Health System Division of General Pediatrics.
The survey provides valuable insights on “current national public opinion, perceptions and priorities regarding major health care issues and trends for U.S. children and people in their communities”. Findings from the NPCH are used to contribute to dialogue on important public policy issues like: childhood obesity, bullying and, access to care.
Recent reports have focused on issues such as:
- How old should children be to use the internet without supervision?
- When should schools intervene in bullying?
- What are the top health problems for children and teens?
