To determine the prevalence and impact of multiple chronic conditions on children's health status and utilization of health services.
Analysis of the 1988 National Health Interview Survey on Child Health.
Nationally representative sample of the U.S. civilian, noninstitutionalized population.
A total of 17,710 children less than 18 years of age selected in a stratified cluster sampling of U.S. households.
We estimated that fewer than 5% of children have multiple (two or more) chronic conditions and that less than 1% of children had three or more such conditions.
However, despite this low overall prevalence, some notable features of multiple chronic conditions stand out.
