General Help

The purpose of the ChildStats web site is to provide easy access to the America's Children annual indicators report and other reports of the Forum. In addition, the site is designed to facilitate the improved access to data on children and their families across the federal agencies that produce the data and to provide information about the activities of the Forum. Finally, the site is designed to provide users with a repository of international, national, state, and local resources related to children and families.

We welcome your comments or suggestions for indicators of child well-being for the America's Children annual report, for other reports we might consider, for suggestions to improve the reporting and dissemination of federal data on children and families generally, and for suggestions of additional data and reports within and without the federal government that would be appropriate material to include on this site. For suggestions or any additional assistance please send us an e-mail at
