The State and Local Integrated Telephone Survey (SLAITS) interviewed 196,888 households with children; 373,055 children were screened for special health care needs, and a parent of 38,866 children with an identified special health care need was interviewed to determine the impact of the chronic health condition on health care utilization and on the family (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC], National Center for Health Statistics [NCHS], Health Resources and Services Administration, Maternal and Child Health Bureau [MCHB], 2003).
Although the Chartbook summary and interpretation of findings from the SLAITS for CSHCN has not been released yet, preliminary findings from this national survey have been presented by the Health Resources and Services Administration, Maternal and Child Health Bureau (van Dyck, May 2003).

Of the five federal household surveys that measure health insurance coverage, three met the first, and perhaps most important, criteria of having a state-representative sample; the Current Population Survey Annual Social and Economic Supplement (CPS), the Behavior Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS), and the State and Local Area Integrated Telephone Survey (SLAITS).
Because of the cost and complexity of in-person household surveys, the state surveys, as well as the federal SLAITS and BRFSS, rely heavily on Random Digit Dialing (RDD) telephone surveys.
