Trends in the Well-Being of America's Children and Youth, 1999. Introduction

04/01/1999

This is the fourth edition of an annual report from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) on trends in the well-being of our nation’s children and youth. The report presents the most recent and reliable estimates on more than 90 indicators of well-being. It is intended to provide the policy community, the media, and all interested citizens with an accessible overview of data describing the condition of children in the United States.

The indicators have been organized into five broad areas:

  • Population, family, and neighborhood;
  • Economic security;
  • Health conditions and health care;
  • Social development, behavioral health, and teen fertility; and
  • Education and achievement.

For each indicator, the report provides graphics to highlight key trends and important population sub-group differences, and tables that provide more detailed information for the interested user. These are accompanied by text that briefly describes the importance of each indicator and highlights the most salient features of the data.
