Indicators of Child, Family, and Community Connections, Companion Volume of Related Papers


This is the campanion volume of papers to the Indicators of Child, Family, and Community Connections chartbook. Family indicators typically include measures such as family structure, employment and poverty status, and benefit receipt. However, these indicators do not fully portray how families function as a unit and as part of society. To lay the groundwork for addressing this issue, ASPE contracted with Mathematica Policy Research and Child Trends to produce a chart book of Indicators of Child, Family, and Community Connections. The chart book presents illustrative examples of how currently available data can be used to generate indicators of the social context of families, and assesses the need for additional data and measures in several domains.
