Statewide Average for Tennessee: 92% of parents report their child’s (under age 9) health is excellent or good.

The survey questions were adapted from the National Survey of Children’s Health survey instrument.  A comparative state-by-state data dashboard can be found at the Data Resource Center for Child & Adolescent Health. Zogby Analytics was commissioned by TQEE to conduct a new survey of 2,507 Tennessee parents with a child under age 9. The survey is large-scale, new (administered June 23, 2022 through August 1, 2022), and has a sampling frame that matches the Tennessee demographics (race, age, family size) for households with a child under age 9, labor market conditions in Tennessee (earnings, sector of work), and regional populations. Based on a confidence interval of 95 percent, the margin of error for the 2,507 surveys is +/- 2.0 percentage points. The regional analysis is based on regional oversampling.

Northeast TN includes the following counties: Carter, Cocke, Greene, Hamblen, Hancock, Hawkins, Johnson, Sullivan, Unicoi and Washington
