National Post-acute and Long-term Care Study

Welcome Adult Day Services Center Survey Participants


The Long-Term Care Statistics Branch at the NCHS would like to thank the providers who participated in the 2020 National Post-acute and Long-term Care Study (NPALS) for adult day services center survey. We look forward to your continued support and participation in 2022 if your adult day services center is sampled. Your participation in the survey enables NCHS to continue to serve you with reliable, trusted information, to support you in the important work you do serving participants and your communities.

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 1,650 (approximate) adult day services centers invited to participate in the 2022 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.
