CCC’s analysis shows that 94% of children living in the highest risk communities are black or Latino. Among the 35 communities where more than half of children are black or Latino, none ranked in the lowest or moderate-low risk categories.
The annual report examines data covering six key areas: economic security, health, housing, education, and youth and family issues; and ranks the city’s 59 community districts from lowest to highest concentration of risk to child well-being.

Armed with this data, CCC is preparing to advocate for the policies and programs that will help eliminate these disparities and ensure all children in New York City have access to the resources they need.
Some of the priorities CCC is advancing include:
