usa child well-being index—press release

“The Foundation for Child Development Index of Child Well-Being Project (CWI) at Duke University has updated its measures of trends in the well-being, or quality of life, of children and youth in the United States over the 27-year period, 1975 to 2002 with projections for 2003.”

“We also note the dramatic impact that increasing obesity rates among America’s children has had on overall well-being since 1975. Conversely, declining rates of criminal activity and victimization, as well as the teenage birth rate, have significantly improved wellbeing during the same time.”
