National Survey of Long-term Care Providers

Welcome Adult Day Services Center Survey Participants


In January 2020, the National Study of Long-Term Care Providers (NSLTCP) was renamed the National Post-acute and Long-term Care Study (NPALS). The information NCHS plans to collect about adult day services centers and participants will not change.

Your adult day services center is important to us!

The most reliable information comes directly from providers like you. In order for policymakers to make solid, evidence-based decisions about long-term care in the United States, it is essential that we collect data from all the 5,500 (approximate) adult day services centers invited to participate in the 2020 NPALS. Without your help, it may be impossible to make accurate estimates about the amount and types of care provided to participants in adult day services centers like yours.

What’s in it for your adult day services center?

Data for comparisons: NPALS data will provide benchmarks, which will allow you to compare your center with other centers like yours.

National and state estimates: By participating, you will contribute to a more complete and accurate picture of the provision and use of adult day services centers and services in the United States, which will inform long-term care policies and planning. Visit the NPALS Study Results and Publications page for examples of how NPALS data have been used to produce national and state estimates of adult day services centers and participants.
