a Family centered care is a composite of 5 questions asked: In the past 12 months / since (his/her) birth [if younger than 12 months], how often did (sample child)'s doctors and other health care providers spend enough time with (him/her)? How often did (sample child)'s doctors and other health care providers listen carefully to you? When (sample child) is seen by doctors and other health care providers, how often are they sensitive to your family's values and customs? In the past 12 months, how often did you get the specific information you needed from (sample child)'s doctors and other health care providers? How often did (sample child)'s doctors or other health care providers help you feel like a partner in (his/her) care? Response options for each question were never; sometimes; usually; always. If all 5 were answered either usually or always, the variable was coded as family centered; if any of the 5 were answered otherwise, the variable was coded as not family centered.

b Poor refers to incomes below the Federal poverty line; near poor, over the poverty line to just below 200 percent of the poverty line; middle, 200 percent to just below 400 percent of the poverty line; and high, 400 percent of the poverty line and over.
