America's children in brief : key national indicators of well-being, 2017
  • Description:
    America’s Children: Key National Indicators of Well-Being, 2017 is a compendium of indicators about our Nation’s young people. The report, the 20th produced by the Forum, presents 41 key indicators on important aspects of children’s lives. These indicators are drawn from our most reliable Federal statistics, are easily understood by broad audiences, are objectively based on substantial research, are balanced so that no single area of children’s lives dominates the report, are measured often to show trends over time, and are representative of large segments of the population rather than one particular group. The report continues to present key indicators in seven domains: family and social environment, economic circumstances, health care, physical environment and safety, behavior, education, and health. To assure that the information stays relevant, the Forum periodically revises indicators, data sources, and features to maintain the relevance of the report. Accordingly, updates have been made to improve the quality and breadth of this year’s report, including changes to the following indicators: Child Maltreatment, Illicit Drug Use, Diet Quality, and High School Academic Coursetaking. In addition to updating data sources and expanding several indicators, this year’s report presents a special feature on peer victimization among 3rd-graders in the United States. This report was printed by the U.S. Government Printing Office in cooperation with the National Center for Health Statistics, July 2017.
