The Child Trends databank of indicators related to child and youth well-being is no longer being updated so that we can focus on data tools and products core to the work of policymakers and other stakeholders, such as:
- State Level Data for Understanding Child Welfare in the United States,
- Black students and students with disabilities remain more likely to receive out-of-school suspensions, despite overall declines,
- Twitter Analysis Can Help Practitioners, Policymakers, and Researchers better understand topics relevant to American Indian/Alaska Native youth, and
- Mapping the Link between Life Expectancy and Educational Opportunity,
Additionally, we have a forthcoming interactive tool on childhood poverty we expect to release in late 2021.
Trends in bullying
Data from the National Survey of Children’s Exposure to Violence (NatSCEV) are available for 2008, 2011, and 2014. There were no significant changes in any type of bullying over these years. (Figure 1) Other trend data from the National Center for Education Statistics show that, while bullying at school was generally steady between 2005 and 2011, it was much lower in 2013. Twenty-two percent of students, ages 12 through 18, reported being bullied at school in 2013, compared with 28 percent in 2005, 2009, and 2011. Due to changes in the questionnaire, comparable earlier data are not available.
