Data Center Description
At the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), information is at the core of our mission, and our website is a vital part of our effort to make this information work for you. Our site is designed to provide you with quick and easy access to the wide range of information and data available from us. We include an overview of our major data collection activities, present our data findings, and provide information about special activities and initiatives to improve access to -- and the quality of -- health statistics information. Our website has links to additional sources of health information and provides a way for you to query us electronically to obtain answers to your specific questions.
