This data book examines statewide trends in the well-being of California's children. The report begins with highlights of findings and focuses on teens in the areas of teen births and gun violence. The report then lists summary tables for the state for 17 indicators of child well being in the areas of: (1) family economics; (2) education; (3) health; and (4) safety. The bulk of the report provides county-by-county data. Some indicators provide comparative data from past years and ethnic comparisons. The first point of analysis is an ethnic and population description of the children within the county. The second area of assessment is family economics and focuses on family income and expenses and economic realities. The third area of analysis is how well children are educated and reports on high school graduates prepared for college and high school dropout rates. The fourth area of concern is child health and includes: late or no prenatal care, preterm births, teen births, immunization, and infant mortality. The fifth area of assessment is how safe children are and includes: child abuse reports, gun deaths, gun injuries and deaths, and foster care placement. The report ends with technical notes, sources, and an appendix on accountability. (SD)
