Keeping Track of New York City's Children: The Millenium Edition, 2002.
Citizens' Committee for Children of New York, NY.
This publication presents data about population characteristics in New York City from city, state, and federal agencies and synthesizes large data sets into basic indicators of social and economic wellbeing and tracking conditions for children in New York City's 59 community districts. It ranks child wellbeing in the districts across a range of categories (poverty, wealth, health, youth development, housing and community life, child safety, education, and environmental quality). Risks are measured and ranked using a composite index. The report also compares child wellbeing in New York City and elsewhere, reports changes over time, examines race and ethnic differences, and documents risks to young school-age and older children. It includes six community profiles and a community-building chart. The community profiles provide an in-depth look at life for children in different neighborhoods. Special attention is paid to the economic conditions children face in these communities, as well as child health, access to affordable child care, and other indicators of child wellbeing. The community-building chart ranks community districts based on the availability of private and public services for children. Service quality is also tracked via data on program accreditation. Complete data tables are appended. (SM)
