Policy-makers, community organizations and advocates need data and statistics to monitor changes in children’s lives objectively, to investigate disparities in opportunities for children and to distribute resources efficiently and effectively. Since 1989, Children Now has tracked California children’s well-being through annual statistical publications. This year’s California County Data Book contains county-level statistics about California children’s health, education, family economics and child welfare. The County Profiles draw a picture of children in each county with 28 measurements of children’s well-being. Forty-one County Ranking Charts allow for county-by-county comparisons.
