February 2013Vol. 14, No. 1Latino Kids Data Explorer
The National Council of La Raza (NCLR) has created the Latino Kids Data Explorer, an online tool that provides data on the well-being of Latino children in the United States. The Data Explorer allows users to choose among 27 indicators of well-being, such as citizenship status, children in single-parent or low-income families, and children without health insurance. The data are grouped by age, time trend, racial group, and by State.
The Data Explorer was designed to be a resource for people whose work may be affected by the increasing diversity in our nation's child population, such as researchers and policymakers. It is an extension of NCLR's America's Future: Latino Child Well-Being in Numbers and Trends, published in 2010.
The Latino Kids Data Explorer is available on the NCLR website:
Children's Bureau Express covered NCLR's America's Future: Latino Child Well-Being in Numbers and Trends in the article "Data on Latino Children Well-Being" (July/August 2010).
