National Core Indicators (NCI) is a collaborative effort between the National Association of State Directors of Developmental Disabilities Services (NASDDDS) and the Human Services Research Institute (HSRI). The purpose of the program is to support NASDDDS member agencies to gather a standard set of performance and outcome measures that can be used to:
- track their own performance over time
- compare results across states
- establish national benchmarks
Arizona was one of fifteen states that initially stepped forward in 1997 to charter the work and contribute resources to develop valid and reliable data collection protocols.
Reports on how Arizona has used NCI data, including collecting Adult Consumer and Adult Family Survey data, are presented here.
