For this brief, we developed indices of children’s contexts for three contextual domains (family, neighborhood, and socio-demographic) from the 2003 National Survey of Children’s Health (NSCH). An index of negative and positive contextual well-being was developed for each of these domains. Additionally, we created an overall positive and negative contextual well-being index. Indices are reported for each state and the U.S. as a whole.
