America's Children: Key National Indicators of Well-Being, 2013

Log in to Download


Released in July 2013. Each year since 1997, the Federal Interagency Forum on Child and Family Statistics has published a report on the well-being of children and families. Indicators are chosen because they are easy to understand, are based on substantial research connecting them to child well-being, cut across important areas of children’s lives, are measured regularly so that they can be updated and show trends over time, and represent large segments of the population, rather than one particular group. These child well-being indicators span seven domains: Family and Social Environment, Economic Circumstances, Health Care, Physical Environment and Safety, Behavior, Education, and Health. The “Special Feature” in this edition concerns “The Kindergarten Year.”
