2011 Child and Youth Well-Being Index (CWI)

11/14/11

Each year, the Foundation for Child Development and the Child and Youth Well-Being Index Project at Duke University issue a comprehensive measure of how children are faring in the United States. The overall comprehensive Child Well-Being Index (CWI) is based on a composite of 28 Key Indicators of-Life/Well-Being Domains. These domains family economic well-being, safe/risky behavior, social relationships, emotional/spiritual well-being, community engagement, educational attainment, and health. This year’s overall CWI is an updated measure of trends over the 34-year from 1975 to 2009, with projections for 2010.
