NCHS Research Data Center
- New Survey Available: National Study of Long-Term Care Providers (NSLTCP)
We are pleased to announce that survey data from the 2012 National Study of Long-Term Care Providers (NSLTCP) are now available at the NCHS Research Data Center. NSLTCP is a new initiative by NCHS to provide nationally representative statistical information about the supply and use of paid, regulated long-term care services providers in the United States. NSLTCP comprises two components: (1) survey data collected by NCHS on adult day services centers (ADSCs) and assisted living and similar residential care communities (RCCs); and (2) administrative data on nursing homes, home health agencies, and hospices obtained from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. For more information, please refer to the NSLTCP survey methodology and documentation document.

Humphrey Building in Washington, D.C. This location is scheduled to open on January 13, 2014. More information will be available as the date approaches.
