The AAP Child Health Mapping Project

  A Collaborative Advocacy and Research Project of the AAP and the Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy & Clinical Practice

Welcome to The AAP Child Health Mapping Project!

The American Academy of Pediatrics has partnered with the Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy & Clinical Practice to create a Web-based geographic representation of child health in the United States. The Child Health Mapping Project uses a data-driven approach to support the delivery of high quality pediatric health care in the United States.
This project provides national and state-specific data on pediatric health care delivery at the Primary Care Service Area (PCSA) level. A range of maps is available, including the number of children under the age of 18 per pediatrician; number of children in linguistically isolated households; median household income; number of pediatric residents and fellows; and estimated vaccine coverage rates.
We invite you to explore both national and state data.


What are PCSAs?

PCSAs are a type of geographic area for health care. Just as cities, counties, and states serve as political administrative units, PCSAs define the boundaries of local primary health care markets. More information about PCSAs.

You can access maps that give information on:

  • Children Under 18 Per Clinically Active Pediatrician 

  • Percent of Clinically Active Pediatricians Who are Female 

  • Median Household Income

  • National and State Maps: Percent of Hispanic Children < 18 Years Old

  • National and State Maps: Percent of Children 5-17 Years Old in Linguistically Isolated Households


There are also data tables that provide general demographic information for each PCSA. This information includes the number of pediatricians, the number of children, the number of female pediatricians, median household income, and other characteristics.
