The Imprint: Report Ranks New York State Counties by Family and Child Well-Being


January 12, 2021

“From the teeming high-rise tenements of New York City’s Bronx County to the sparsely populated hamlets of rural Yates County, before the pandemic, more than 800,000 of the Empire State’s children were living in poverty and over 900,000 households were struggling to keep a roof over their heads, according to a new report.

The research and advocacy nonprofit Citizens’ Committee for the Children of New York said its study is the first to crunch the latest data from all 62 counties to create an index of child and family well-being. Researchers looked at 18 measures of risk levels across six broad domains: economic security, housing, health, education, youth, and family and community.”
