Report Presents National Data on Child Well-Being
The Federal Interagency Forum on Child and Family Statistics has released “America’s Children: Key National Indicators of Well-Being, 2009.” The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention is one of the 22 Federal agencies that constitute the Forum.
Since 1997, the Forum has published this annual report, which provides detailed information on the welfare of children and families, alternating between a comprehensive report, as is the case this year, and a condensed version highlighting selected indicators.
This year’s comprehensive report tracks three demographic background measures and 40 key indicators and features children with special health care needs.
“America’s Children: Key National Indicators of Well-Being, 2009” is available online at www.childstats.gov/americaschildren/index.asp.
Print copies can be ordered online from the National Criminal Justice Reference Service at www.ncjrs.gov.
