Newark Kids Count 2006: A City Profile of Child Well-Being
Traini, Cecilia
Association for Children of New Jersey
Over the past five years, Newark has seen creeping gains in several indicators of child and family well-being, particularly economics, education and health. Even though there is some good news to report, the fact remains that Newark children still suffer disproportionately compared to children growing up in other parts of Essex County, New Jersey and other urban areas. Children in Newark are more likely to be poor, more likely to grow up with a single mother, less likely to graduate from high school and more likely to end up in foster care. These are just some of the statistics in "Newark Kids Count 2006," the Association for Children of New Jersey's (ACNJ's) 9th annual report on the well-being of children in New Jersey's largest city. This year, ACNJ has added a special section about the Fragile Families study to add more depth to the annual statistics presented in Newark Kids Count. A glossary is also included.
