Children Now recently released the 2020-21 California County Scorecard of Children’s Well-Being, an interactive tool that delivers data on how kids are doing in each of California’s 58 counties, and tracks 39 key indicators of children’s well-being – over time, by race/ethnicity and relative to other counties – from prenatal to the transition to adulthood.

"According to this year’s Scorecard, the current outlook is not promising. Kids are counting on us to improve outcomes and build them a brighter future. This is more critical than ever before as California kids are really struggling – they are increasingly experiencing stress, social isolation, disconnectedness and serious mental health issues. And the learning loss and lack of preventive health care because of the pandemic threatens this entire generation." - Kelly Hardy, Senior Managing Director, Health & Research, Children Now
