Summary:

This data book serves to share information about the environmental factors impacting children, ages 8 and under, in South Carolina, compared to North Carolina, Georgia, and the United States as a whole.

There is no one comprehensive indicator of child well-being . Rather, well-being spans physical, social-emotional, and cognitive health and development. Since children do not grow up in a vacuum from their parents or communities, there are a variety of factors that influence overall well-being and long-term flourishing.

ICS is hosting a webinar, Utilizing the SC Data Book to Your Advantage on Tuesday, April 9 to help childhood champions utilize the SC Data Book to your  full advantage as you take action, advocate for children’s well-being, request or invest grant funds, and examine landscape analyses. We’ll discuss some of the 80+ indicators of child and family well-being across four domains: family environment, physical health, emotional well-being, and cognitive development.
