National Core Indicators (NCI)

Helping improve disability services across Nebraska

Nebraska is participating in National Core Indicators (NCI) and the National Core Indicator Aging and Disabilities (NCI-AD) surveys to assess the quality of life for adults receiving services from certain Department of Health and Human Services programs. The goal is to improve these services, and your opinions and feedback help Nebraska do that.

About the NCI survey

The NCI survey, also known as the Adult In-Person Survey, reaches out to adults with developmental disabilities and their families.

The NCI-AD survey reaches out to adults receiving services through the Aged and Disabled (A&D) Waiver and the Traumatic Brain Injury Waiver, as well as, individuals receiving services through nursing care facilities or in their home through the Personal Assistance Services (PAS) program. 

The surveys are funded by the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services. The Munroe-Meyer Institute is an independent organization that has been contracted by the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services to conduct face-to-face interviews with individuals receiving services.

Survey participation

Your decision to participate is voluntary, and your services and supports will not be affected regardless of participation in the survey. All responses and information are confidential. 

The interview takes about 30-45 minutes. If you are contacted, we hope you will be willing to set up a time to meet and provide your opinions.

If you are interested in setting up a time to meet with a Munroe-Meyer Institute interviewer at your convenience, please contact Rachel Ray at 1-800-656-3937 ext. 402-559-3673 (toll free).
