About the Data
Description of the data source, numerator, denominator, survey questions, and other relevant details about the national estimate.
States (including the District of Columbia) that have a system for recording children with cleft lips, palates, and other craniofacial anomalies
From the 2013 Annual Synopses of State and Territorial Dental Public Health Programs:
Does your state have a system for recording children with cleft lips, palates, and other craniofacial anomalies?
The Association of State and Territorial Dental Directors (ASTDD) collects information through a questionnaire that is distributed to all State Dental Directors and the DC. Each Director completes the questionnaire annually and a summary of the report is placed on the ASTDD website (www.astdd.org). The survey contains a number of questions that focus on the state dental program components and the data collection efforts and monitoring of oral health surveillance measures.
Any change to the objective text, baseline, target, target-setting method or data source since the Healthy People 2020 launch.
