New Report on the How the Economic Crisis will Impact the Well-being of the Nation's Children

The Foundation for Child Development has issued their annual report on the Child Well-being Index. The findings include

The significant decrease in this domain will also drag down the other domains of the CWI [social relationships, health, community connectedness and safety/behavior]. The impact will be especially severe for low-income children of color.
For policies to improve family economic success and child outcomes.
