Data Vignettes Data Vignettes
This project puts faces and names to the data from the National Survey of Children with Special Health Care Needs (CSHCN). While the stories are composites of many families and do not depict specific families or children, the vignettes can be used to increase understanding of racial and ethnic disparities in delivering care to CSHCN. Each vignette contains discussion questions as well as links to additional resources on the main issues raised in the vignette.
