Report Assesses Well-Being of America's Children

July 23, 2013

The Federal Interagency Forum on Child and Family Statistics, of which the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention is a participating agency, has released “America's Children: Key National Indicators of Well-Being, 2013.” The report features statistics on children and families in the United States across 41 key indicators, including family and social environment, economic circumstances, health care, physical environment and safety, behavior, education, and health. The forum’s mission is to collect enhanced data on children and youth, communicate it to the policy community and general public, and produce more complete data at the federal, state, and local levels.
