This year, the Federal Interagency Forum on Child and Family Statistics (the Forum) published America's Young Adults: Special Issue, 2014, a one-time report on young adults in the United States, ages 18–24. Findings highlight data trends and snapshots of the education, health and well-being of this population as they transition to adulthood.
Next year, the Forum will issue its customary, signature report, America's Children: Key National Indicators of Well-Being, featuring statistics on children and families in the United States across a range of domains, including family and social environment, economic circumstances, health care, physical environment and safety, behavior, education and health. The America's Children 2014 At-A-Glance and updated report tables for all 41 key national indicators can still be found online.
A working group of 22 Federal agencies, the Forum fosters coordination, collaboration, and integration of Federal efforts to collect, analyze and report data on conditions and trends related to child and family well-being. The Forum also has partners in private research organizations.
