  • Description:
    America’s Children: Key National Indicators of Well-Being, 2000 is the fourth report in an annual series prepared by the Interagency Forum on Child and Family Statistics. A collaborative effort by 20 Federal agencies, including two—the Environmental Protection Agency and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration—that joined the Forum this year, the report is required by President Clinton’s Executive Order No. 13045. As in past years, readers will find here an accessible compendium of indicators—drawn from the most recent, most reliable official statistics—illustrative of 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. For example, two data gaps that were identified in earlier reports have been addressed by establishing a background indicator to measure child care utilization and providing further details on children’s living arrangements. In addition, this year’s report includes a new background measure on exposure to air pollution as well as more detailed information on the causes of children’s deaths. Special feature indicators this year include measures of children’s knowledge and skills at kindergarten entry and youth involvement in volunteer activities.
