Delaware Survey of Children's Health

Nemours has made a promise to protect the health of children not only through care delivery but through innovative programs and initiatives. That is exactly what we’re doing by launching the Nemours Health & Prevention Services (NHPS) Data Center. The Data Center is designed to facilitate more data-driven decision making in the field of child health promotion.

The Delaware Survey of Children’s Health (DSCH), sponsored by Nemours Health and Prevention Services (NHPS), is one of the most comprehensive public health surveillance instruments for children in Delaware. The data from the survey has been used by Nemours and its partners to inform program development, guide children’s health initiatives, and monitor public health indicators. DSCH was first implemented in 2006, followed by two additional administrations in 2008-09 and in 2011-12.

The NHPS Data Center allows for comparisons among different variables such as gender, age, race and ethnicity at the county and city level on issues such as weight status, consumption of healthy foods, activity levels, and parental understanding of a child’s weight. It contains information from the three iterations (2006, 2008, and 2011) of the DSCH, reaching over 3,200 Delaware households with children from birth through age 17. In addition, the NHPS Data Center serves as a repository for data briefs synthesizing DSCH findings on a variety of topics.
