Overview Characteristics of CSHCN and non-CSCHN
The CSHCN population has a much higher proportion of adolescents and children in middle childhood than the population of non-CSHCN. Nearly 80 percent of the CSHCN population are age 6 or above, compared with just over 60 percent of the non-CSHCN population. This is likely due to the increasing identification of CSHCN as age increases and emerging conditions are identified.
Over half (59.3 percent) of the CSHCN population are boys, compared with 49.2 percent of the non-CSHCN population. The population of CSHCN and non-CSHCN do not vary significantly by income.
