    • Description:
      America’s Children: Key National Indicators of Well-Being, 1999 is the third report in an annual series prepared by the Federal Interagency Forum on Child and Family Statistics. A collaborative effort by 18 Federal agencies, the report is required by President Clinton’s Executive Order No. 13045. As in past years, readers will find here an accessible compendium—drawn from the most recent, most reliable official statistics—to both the promises and the difficulties confronting our Nation’s young people. This report updates the information presented last year, maintaining comparability with previous volumes while incorporating several improvements: the racial/ethnic categories have been made more consistent across indicators; additional detail has been added to the population and family characteristic, Births to Unmarried Women; the Food Security indicator has been expanded to include a measure of the nutritional quality of children’s diets; and Children Who Have Difficulty Performing Everyday Activities has been included as a new special feature. This relatively simple update in 1999 reflects a decision to concentrate the Forum’s resources on consideration of a more substantial revision in 2000.
