State of the Child

Data Driven Detroit (D3)   (Detroit)

The Skillman Foundation requested that D3 prepare a white paper on the overall well-being of Detroit's children, with a sub-analysis specific to boys of color. This report presents a broad set of indicators on the population aged 0 to 18 years in the City of Detroit. Indicators fall into the following categories: demographic overview, early childhood well-being, child health and access to health care, education, and safety and community. The research provides a basis for a deeper understanding of how best to support Detroit's children, and a benchmark to measure gains in the future.
