Child Trends develops and promotes indicators of child well-being used by researchers and policymakers to better understand children and youth and provide the means for assessing our shared accountability, as a nation, for their welfare. The Child Trends DataBank examines and monitors more than 100 indicators that focus on both risks and positive development for children. We also conduct in-depth reviews of subpopulations of children and youth – for example, children in adoptive families, infants and toddlers, and children in a particular region or jurisdiction.
For Venture Philanthropy Partners, Child Trends reported on the well-being of children and youth in the Washington, D.C. metro region. Capital Kids: Shared Responsibility, Shared Future.
