The National Core Indicators (NCI) program is a collaborative effort between the National Association of State Directors of Developmental Disabilities Services (NASDDDS) and the Human Services Research Institute (HSRI) to establish indicators that measure the performance of ID/DD services and supports within and across states.
NCI is a multi-state effort with more than a decade’s worth of information about the experiences of people and families receiving services. This has been accomplished through the commitment of participating states to contribute resources and knowledge, identify common performance indicators, develop comparable data collection strategies, and share results.
The guiding principle of NCI has always been to enhance the transparency of information about system performance. Publications, data reports, a customizable “chart-making” tool, and other important resources can be found at: www.nationalcoreindicators.org.
