CCC’s Community Risk Ranking combines data from across multiple dimensions of child well-being – economic security, health, housing, education, issues specific to teens and youths, and family and community – to provide a better understanding of where risks to child well-being concentrate across New York City’s 59 community districts. This information can help to determine where additional resources, supports or services are needed to improve outcomes for children.
The report lays bare the geographic and racial/ethnic disparities facing children and families across the city:
We hope that this child well-being index will help families, elected officials, policy-makers, researchers, foundation and corporate program officers, and New Yorkers at large better understand the needs of the communities in which they live, work, and serve, so that they may advocate for the resources necessary to make New York City a better place for every child.
