America’s Children: Key National Indicators of Well-Being, 2013

America’s Children: Key National Indicators of Well-Being, 2013

Nineteen years ago, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB)
joined with six other Federal agencies to create the Federal
Interagency Forum on Child and Family Statistics. Formally
chartered in April 1997 through Executive Order No. 13045,
the Forum’s mission is to develop priorities for collecting
enhanced data on children and youth, improve the communication
of information on the status of children to the policy community
and the general public, and produce more complete data on
children at the Federal, state, and local levels. Today the Forum,
which now has participants from 22 Federal agencies and partners
in several private research organizations, fosters coordination,
collaboration, and integration of Federal efforts to collect and
report data on children and families and calls attention to needs
for new data about them.

America’s Children: Key National Indicators of Well-Being, 2013 is
a compendium of indicators depicting both the promises and the
challenges confronting our Nation’s young people.
The report, the 16th in an ongoing series, presents 41 key indicators
on important aspects of children’s lives. These indicators are drawn
from our most reliable statistics, are easily understood by broad
audiences, are objectively based on substantial research, are
balanced so that no single area of children’s lives dominates the
report, are measured regularly so that they can be updated to show
trends over time, and are representative of large segments of the
population rather than one particular group.

The report continues to present key indicators in seven domains:
family and social environment, economic circumstances, health care,
physical environment and safety, behavior, education, and health.
This year’s report also incorporates several modifications that
reflect the Forum’s efforts to improve its quality and breadth.
In addition to updating data sources and expanding several indicators,
the report presents a special feature on children’s kindergarten
experiences.

Each volume of America’s Children also spotlights critical data gaps
and challenges Federal statistical agencies to address them. Forum
agencies meet that challenge by working to provide more comprehensive
and consistent information on the condition and progress of our
Nation’s children. Since the last full report was issued in 2011,
Forum agencies have continued efforts to strengthen indicators by
improving measurement of family reading behaviors with young children,
by featuring updated lead exposure data using the most recent Centers
for Disease Control and Prevention reference standard, by displaying
U.S. data alongside international data for several education indicators,
and by updating diet quality trend data using the most recent Dietary
Guidelines for Americans. In activities not featured in this volume,
the Forum’s Research and Innovation Committee continues its work in
addressing measurement and data needs in early childhood development,
particularly in socioemotional development.

The value of the America’s Children series and the extraordinary
cooperation that these reports represent reflect the Forum’s determination
to help better understand the well-being of our children today and what
may bring them a better future. The Forum agencies should be
congratulated once again for developing such a comprehensive set of
indicators and ensuring they are readily accessible in both content and
format. The report is an excellent reflection of the dedication of the
Forum agency staff members who assess data needs, strive to make data
presentations more consistent, and work together to produce this
substantial and important publication. Nonetheless, suggestions of ways
we can enhance this portrait of children are always welcome.

None of this work would be possible without the continued cooperation
of millions of Americans who provide the data that are summarized and
analyzed by Federal statistical agencies. This report is, first and
foremost, for you and all of the American public. We thank you for your
gift, and we hope the volume will continue to be useful to you.

Behavior

http://www.childstats.gov/americaschildren/beh.asp

The well-being of young people can be affected by aspects
of their behavior and social environments.  The indicators in
this section focus on illegal and high-risk behaviors.
Substance use behaviors are
shown for regular cigarette smoking,
alcohol use, and illicit drug use. Other indicators in this section
present data on behaviors such as sexual activity and perpetration
of serious violent crime.

Economic Circumstances

http://www.childstats.gov/americaschildren/eco.asp

The well-being of children depends greatly on the economic
circumstances and material well-being of their families.
Indicators of economic resources include the income and
poverty status of children’s families and the secure employment
of children’s parents. An indicator on food insecurity presents
information on the difficulty of obtaining adequate food among
households with children. These indicators provide a broad
perspective on children’s economic situations.

.

Education

http://www.childstats.gov/americaschildren/edu.asp

This section presents key indicators of children’s learning and progress
from early childhood through postsecondary school entry, including
family reading to young children, mathematics and reading achievement,
and advanced coursetaking. Indicators on high school completion,
college enrollment, and youth neither enrolled nor working indicate
the level to which youth are prepared for further education or the
workforce, or are at risk for limiting their future prospects. Selected
indicators also feature international comparisons.

Health

http://www.childstats.gov/americaschildren/health.asp

The World Health Organization defines health as a
“state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being,
and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”
This section presents indicators of several important aspects
or determinants of child health. Some of the indicators in this
section relate to birth outcomes such as low birthweight,
preterm birth, and infant mortality. Other indicators describe
key health conditions, including emotional or behavioral
difficulties, adolescent depression, obesity, and asthma.
An indicator on the quality of children’s diets compares
children’s dietary intake to recommended national dietary
guidelines. The indicator on activity limitation presents a
global measure that gauges the effect of chronic health
conditions on children’s functioning.

Health

Family and Social Environment

http://www.childstats.gov/americaschildren/famsoc.asp

The indicators in this section present data on the composition
of children’s families and the social environment in which they live.
The seven indicators include family structure and children’s living
arrangements, births to unmarried women, child care, presence of a

foreign-born parent, language spoken at home and difficulty speaking
English, adolescent births, and child maltreatment.
