Exploring the Contexts of Child Well-being

Our data exploration tool is grounded in the science of human development, which tells us that if we want to assess how well children are doing, and identify solutions to challenges in child well-being, we must look not only at personal characteristics, but at the physical, social, economic and cultural environments in which children live and grow.

Each of these contexts is represented in the image to the right, with the most direct, interpersonal contexts in the very center (family, child care, school), and the less direct but significant contexts in outer rings. Begin exploring by clicking a circle (e.g., school, housing).
