The Child Trends DataBank examines and monitors more than 100 indicators that focus on risks and positive developments for children. For each indicator it summarizes what the research says about its importance to children’s development, tracks trends over time and by subgroup, and highlights strategies likely to improve well-being. It also provides links to state, local, and international data. Its estimates come from reliable sources including federal reports and websites. Other resources in the indicators area include The Child Indicator newsletter and Facts at a Glance.
