The State of America's Children

To better understand the challenges children face today, we created The State of America’s Children research study to gauge American adults’ perceptions of threats, fears, or issues facing children and youth. While there were a number of results that gave cause for hope, including the degree to which adults are attuned to the challenges facing today’s children, the study found that the respondents see a daunting array of traditional and emerging dangers facing children today, and many hold bleak views about their physical, emotional and educational condition, as well as how children in America are valued and treated.
