Keeping Track of New York City’s Children is the most comprehensive centralized database tracking the well-being of New York City’s children. It has become a must-read for government officials, professionals, parents, and all New Yorkers seeking to improve the lives of children. The data and statistics in Keeping Track are the foundation of our fact-based advocacy efforts.
The eleventh and newest edition of Keeping Track highlights areas where there have been improvements to child well-being over the past several years, and areas where there continue to be significant racial and geographic disparities among New York City’s children. According to the data, low-income children of color are the most at-risk, and too often lack access to basic services that are proven to pave the way for a brighter future.
As our elected officials make budget and policy decisions that seek to address inequality in New York City, it is our hope that Keeping Track makes a strong case for investment in programs and services that ensure all children and families thrive.
