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.
You may also browse data online by visiting our interactive Keeping Track Online data tool.
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.
