Keeping Track of New York City’s Children | 2017

Keeping Track Data Book

January 1, 2017

Keeping Track of New York City’s Children is a biannual report on the status of child well-being in New York City. Keeping Track 2017 includes hundreds of indicators that create a picture of how children, from infancy to young adulthood, are faring across New York City – citywide, by borough and in each of the city’s 59 community districts.

Keeping Track 2017 is designed to serve as a desk reference for Keeping Track Online, the most comprehensive compilation of data on the well-being of New York City’s children and the largest set of city-level data of its kind.

This edition highlights areas where the city has seen progress in recent years in meeting the needs of children and families, while underscoring the disparities that persist across racial/ethnic groups and geographic lines. The data point to areas where more must be done to ensure that every child is healthy, housed, educated and safe.

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.
