National Core Indicators

The National Core Indicators (NCI) is a multi-state effort with more than a decade's worth of information about the experiences of people and families receiving services. This has been accomplished through the commitment of participating states to contribute resources and knowledge, identify common performance indicators, develop comparable data collection strategies, and share results. Participating states utilize a common set of data collection protocols to gather information about the performance of service delivery systems for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Data from NCI are aggregated and used to support state efforts to strengthen long term care policy, inform the conduct of quality assurance activities and compare performance with national norms. NCI data additionally have been used as the basis of data briefs on specific areas of interest such as employment, dual diagnosis, self-directed services, and autism spectrum disorders.

Since the inception of NCI the program has prepared and published yearly state and national data reports as well as topical data briefs highlighting important issues. Through presentations in the United States and internationally, NCI results have been made available to wide ranging audiences including self-advocates, family members, professionals and policy-makers. The guiding principle of NCI has always been to enhance the transparency of information about system performance. Publications, data reports, a customizable "chart-making" tool, and other important resources can be found at www.nationalcoreindicators.org.
