Data related to children at the state and local levels are often difficult to obtain and lack any kind of comparison to surrounding states or a national average. We hope that providing key state and national data in a concise uniform format will enable readers to see how their own state is doing, look at neighboring states and the national average, and then urge their elected officials (at the federal, state, and local level) to do more for children.
