A Focused Look at the Data

Here you will find disaggregated data on a number of key indicators related to child well-being. These data are intended to provide a sharp focus on equity and to illustrate how we as a community are doing when it comes to issues of equity.

Family Support

Strengthening and supporting families, especially the most vulnerable, is key to improving child well-being in our community.

All children deserve to grow up in loving, supportive families. All families deserve the structures and supports that enable them to adequately care for their children.  

Maternal & Child Health

Child health begins before birth, and is dependent on the health of the mother, even before she becomes pregnant. 

Good health is central to the quality of life for individuals and communities and cannot be viewed in isolation from the social determinants of health.

Early Childhood Development

The individual, social, and economic benefits of providing access to high quality, affordable early childhood development opportunities to all children and families cannot be overstated.

Currently, not all children have access to the same early childhood opportunities.

Quality Education

Ensuring that all children have access to a quality education and that inequities in educational opportunities and outcomes are eliminated remains a critical challenge in our community.

Every child deserves the type of education that we would want for our own children. 

Youth Development

Positive youth development opportunities, especially for youth who face the most significant challenges, can have a dramatic impact on improving child well-being and producing healthy, productive adults.

Yet, not all youth have access to the opportunities that can facilitate positive development.

Safe Neighborhoods & Strong Communities

Many factors contribute to safe neighborhoods and strong communities that ultimately support, or undermine, the well-being of children and their families.

Every child deserves to grow up in a safe, healthy home located in a strong, vibrant neighborhood.
