August 2012Vol. 13, No. 7Kids Well-Being Indicators Clearinghouse
The New York State Council on Children and Families has developed the Kids' Well-being Indicators Clearinghouse (KWIC). The website is designed to use child health, education, and well-being indicators as a tool for the development of policy, planning, and accountability.
Users can access KWIC indicator data for every county in the State by selecting an indicator from various life areas such as economic security, education, family, and community. Another way to view data on the website is to search by specific counties and topic-specific reports. A map and graph builder enable customized reports users can tailor to their specific needs, and the MyKWIC offers a registration feature to create an account for future use.
KWIC Indicator Narratives provide definitions and the latest findings on each of the six indicators included on the website. A list of resources is also available for users looking for more information on data-focused publications. To learn more and sign up for updates, visit the KWIC website:
