The Children with Special Health Care Needs (CSHCN) Data Set 2010 contains recent data for Colorado and the nation including maternal and child health performance measures as well as other measures of interest in the CSHCN population. Performance measures are determined by the federal Maternal and Child Health Bureau and by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment and are used to define problems and to facilitate planning for public health. The additional measures included in the Data Set that are not performance measures are selected by the Health Care Program for Children with Special Needs at the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment and are also used to define problems and to facilitate planning.
