Annotation: This publication presents updated data reflecting the state of children's lives in the United States and assessing trends in their well-being. The objective is to provide States with a benchmark against which they can evaluate the success they have had in improving the condition of children.
Abstract: Ten measures reflecting various dimensions of children's lives are discussed here. They include low-percent, birth- weight babies, infant mortality rate, child death rate, percent of all births to single teens, juvenile violent crime arrest data, percent graduating from high school on time, percent teens not in school and not in labor force, teen violent death rate, percent children in poverty, and percent children in single-parent families. These dimensions reflect a broad range of conditions influencing the well-being of children and conditions across a range of developmental stages, and are consistent across States and over time. This book presents the United States profile based on these 10 dimensions, and profiles for all 50 States and the District of Columbia. 4 appendixes
