The California Index of Child and Youth Well-Being

The first-ever "California Index of Child and Youth Well Being" shows a consistent pattern of improvement in how children have fared over the last decade, but warns that the present economic recession could undermine and possibly even reverse those gains. The index is based on data from kidsdata.org, which recently expanded to offer data on children's health and well being for all cities, counties, and school districts in California.

Go to kidsdata.org/index to access the interactive report.
