This year’s publication continues to present national and state data across four domains — economic well-being, education, health and family and community — and ranks states in overall child well-being. The report includes pre-pandemic figures as well as more recent statistics, and shares the latest information of its kind available.

This helpful tool organizes data in a way that showcases the variety of environments that affect child well-being.
This report examines how households with children are faring during the pandemic, based primarily on surveys conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau. It also offers recommendations for leaders, who must prioritize children and families in response efforts.
