The Child Indicator Newsletter
The fall 2011 issue of Child Trends' The Child Indicator newsletter summarizes findings from the latest editions of several national reports.
- The 2011 KIDS COUNT Data Book reports on economic damage and how it has affected child well-being.
- America's Children: Key National Indicators of Well-Being, 2011, from the Federal Interagency Forum on Child and Family Statistics, includes a special feature on adoption.
- "A Child's Day: 2009" is a series of 2009 data collected through the Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP), which is sponsored by the U.S. Census Bureau.
- Three reports on unintended pregnancies highlight various aspects of the issue. The Brookings Center on Children and Families report focuses on negative outcomes for teens who become pregnant; the report by the Guttmacher Institute explores unintended pregnancies as they relate to financial trends; and the Child Trends report is centered on contraception use by teens.
- "The Nation's Report Card" describes test results of U.S. students' knowledge of history, geography, and civics.
Additional articles in The Child Indicator describe reports on conditions affecting newborns, mothers, and youth around the globe.
