A Snapshot of Children on the San Diego-Mexico Border analyzed key measures of children’s family economic status, health and education on a community level in San Diego County, unveiling disparities in child well-being in several areas with highly concentrated Latino residents and Mexican immigrants compared to the rest of the county. The report defines a “border community” not by its physical location on the border with Mexico, but by its higher concentration of residents from Mexico and who identify as Latino, in an attempt to highlight border communities’ unique set of social factors and challenges.
