Updated! Early Childhood State Policy Profiles and Young Child Risk Calculator (National Center for Children in Poverty)

 On June 5, 2014, the National Center for Children in Poverty (NCCP) released updated Early Childhood State Policy Profiles, highlighting state policies in the areas that affect the health and well-being of young children in low-income families. NCCP has also updated the Young Child Risk Calculator, an interactive tool that shows how many children in each state are experiencing serious risks to their development. The tool allows users to select from five age groups: 0-3, 3-5, 6-8, 0-6, and 0-9, as well as three economic and seven other risk factors known to affect children’s development. The Early Childhood State Policy Profiles and Young Child Risk Calculator are products of the Improving the Odds Project for Young Children Project at NCCP.
