National Data Set (NDS)
2016 NDS Survey is now available and data submission is open!
2015 data is in the process of being analyzed for the 2016 National Summary Report. Once available, we will announce its release here, on our home page, and in NewsBriefs. Thank you for your patience!
The National Data Set represents a comprehensive compilation of information on hospice operations, including:
- Who provides care;
- Who receives care;
- The range, cost and quality of hospice services.
NDS summary results provide useful information to hospices for defining strategic goals, setting operational targets, and improving care delivery.

While there is no fee to participate, membership is required to access summary reports.
