America's Children: Key National Indicators of Well-Being, 2017

About This Report

The Federal Interagency Forum on Child and Family Statistics' primary mission is to enhance data collection and reporting on children and families. America's Children: Key National Indicators of Well-Being, 2017 (referred to as America's Children) provides the Nation with a summary of national indicators of our children's well-being and monitors changes in these indicators. The purposes of the report are to improve reporting of Federal data on children and families; make these data available in an easy-to-use, nontechnical format; stimulate discussions among policymakers and the public; and spur exchanges between the statistical and policy communities.
