Data warehouses or query systems that incorporate SLAITS data

 

  • The Data Resource Center for Child & Adolescent Health, a project of the Child and Adolescent Health Measurement Initiative (housed at the Oregon Health & Sciences University,   Portland, OR). This site provides a wealth of information on the analysis, interpretation, use, and dissemination of data for a number of SLAITS modules.
  • The NCHS Survey Measures Catalog: Child and Adolescent Mental Health, launched in 2007. It contains mental health measures from a number of SLAITS modules and other NCHS surveys.
  • Child health care quality toolbox: It provides resources to improve measurement and evaluation of quality in children's health programs.
