National Core Indicators

The National Core Indicators (NCI) project is a joint effort between the National Association of State Directors of Developmental Disabilities Services (NASDDDS) and the Human Services Research Institute (HSRI). This voluntary project gives participating states a set of indicators that measure the performance of I/DD services and supports.  This allows states to measure and track their own performance.  Also, states can compare their results to other states and national averages.

NCI collects data on indicators related to quality of life. This includes employment, rights, service planning, community inclusion, choice, and health and safety. Information is collected through 5 NCI surveys. To learn more about NCI, please visit
