Synopsis: This study reports on a statewide survey of county mental health administrators’ perceptions of need for child and adolescent psychiatrists, and examines factors associated with their perceptions. Results point to current capacity and county-level demographic information, rather than personal demographics or job status, as significant influences on estimated need. Though often dismissed as biased, experts’ perceptions of need may be an important source of information for planning in public systems of care.
