Top 10

Every year, the National Poll on Children’s Health asks adults across the US to rate which children’s health issues are a “big problem.” These ratings are compiled into a Top 10 list of the biggest children’s health concerns in the eyes of adults. Last year, obesity, bullying and drug abuse topped the list of big health problems for kids across the US. Internet safety and sexting jumped higher on the list than the previous year.

This year marks the 10th annual release of the NPCH Top 10 Report. Will bullying and obesity stay at the top of the list? Will new children’s health concerns emerge in the Top 10? The results of the 2016 Top 10 survey will be published next week! Sign up for our email list to make sure you get the report as soon as it’s released.
