Keeping Track of New York City’s Children Premiere
April 23, 2015
9:00 AM - 11:00 AM
This event is currently at capacity, but please reach out to us to be placed on the waiting list.
For over twenty years, Citizens’ Committee for Children has been collecting and compiling the most comprehensive database on the well-being of New York City’s children. The data presented in our Keeping Track publications and included in our online tool have continually provided New Yorkers with the facts needed to identify both risks and opportunities, and ensure that the necessary services are in place to meet the needs of the city’s youngest and most vulnerable residents.
Our upcoming Keeping Track of New York City’s Children (2015) provides a detailed picture of what life is like for the city’s 1.8 million children. We use each chapter to highlight the most important data trends or patterns. We’ve also included a new geographic profiles section, where you will find historical data for key indicators of child well-being for each of New York City’s 59 community districts, five boroughs, and citywide.
The recent release of our Community Risk Ranking highlighted the disparities experienced by children across NYC. This has been the starting point of a dialogue with government officials, foundations, fellow advocates, and community-based providers about the need for increased investments in programs that have proven effective in improving child well-being. We’d like to invite you to the premiere of the newest Keeping Track of New York City’s Children for an exciting opportunity to continue this important discussion!
We thank our colleagues at The Children’s Aid Society for hosting this event at their East Harlem Center at 130 East 101st Street on the morning of Thursday, April 23rd
Speakers will include CCC’s Executive Director Jennifer March and Senior Policy Associate for Research and Data Analysis Courtney Wolf, who is the author of the publication.

Dana Guyet, Vice President, Preventive Services at The New York Foundling
Terry M. Marx, MD, Pediatrician/Assistant Medical Director at the Children’s Aid Society Milbank Health Center
