Young Children Volume I, by Physical and Social Environment, 2007-2008

Project Partner:  Safe Schools/Healthy Students – Austin Community Collaboration to Enhance Student Success (ACCESS)

Question/Topic:  What does the physical and social environment look like for Austin’s youngest children and their families?

Report Released August 2010
This project aimed to raise community awareness and action to help assure our youngest children have a healthy and safe start in life (report available online). Parents, education and business leaders, and the general public increasingly realize the importance of the early years in the life of a child for promoting healthy physical, emotional, social, and intellectual development.  This project was featured in a Summit in September 2008.  Data sources include: AISD Student Population and Demographics, Census 2000, Austin Police Department, ICC, Seton Healthcare Family, St. David’s Healthcare Network, and ESRI Select Business Data.
