This volume provides the primary findings from the North Carolina School Oral Health Survey. It describes the oral health of children in North Carolina public schools during the 1986–87 school year as measured by their decayed, missing, and filled teeth; the number of children with dental sealants; the children's periodontal status; and variations in conditions according to age, race, gender, degree of urbanism, geographic region, and parental education. The volume is illustrated with tables and ends with appendices on the classroom worksheet, study variables, the survey form, and the method of computing sample weights.
