Presents statistics about children's economic security, health, behavior, social environment, and education. This biennial report to the Nation on the condition of children in America provides nine contextual measures describing the changing population, family, and environmental context in which children are living, and 25 indicators depict the well-being of children in the areas of economic security, health, behavior and social environment, and education. The 2005 report has special features on children with asthma, children with specified blood lead levels, and parental reports of children's emotional and behavioral difficulties. In addition, the report includes a special section on family structure and the well-being of children. The Federal Interagency Forum on Child and Family Statistics produces this annual report, which offers the most recent available data from official sources in a nontechnical, user-friendly format.
