Citation of Online SCHS Information

The North Carolina State Center for Health Statistics (SCHS), also known as the North Carolina Center for Health Statistics, requests that individuals who publish or present information derived from SCHS data acknowledge our agency as the original source. Doing so will not only credit SCHS, it can help others return to those SCHS resources, if needed.

Consumers who wish to publish a technical description of the data should make an effort to ensure that their description is consistent with the one published by SCHS.
