Abstract

Background: The North Carolina Health Profile (NCHP), a statewide telephone survey, was introduced as part of the state's Health Policy Information Project aimed at enhancing the use of health data for state policy decision making and program management. A key factor in the creation of the NCHP was a collaboration between the State Center for Health Statistics and the Survey Research Unit at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The purpose of this article is to describe our partnership, the development of the survey design, and the dissemination of survey results.
