This chapter presents the National Survey of Child and Adolescent Well-Being (NSCAW) design features that inform the subsamples and measures used for analysis in all the chapters that follow. It shows that NSCAW has contributed to the body of child welfare knowledge by availing researchers of relatively objective data about children's characteristics and functioning, data that can serve as an assessment of service need, which in turn enables researchers to compare that need with services actually received.

Keywords:   Adolescent Well-Being, NSCAW, design features, child welfare
