Highlighting new and noteworthy data from kidsdata.org
The Lucile Packard Foundation for Children's Health | Oct. 27,
Coming Soon: Data on Truancies, Environmental Health,
Preterm Births, and More
Just a year ago, kidsdata.org expanded from the Bay Area to include wide-ranging data on children’s health and well being for every city, school district, and county in California.
We’re continually updating the hundreds of measures that are available through kidsdata.org (see an A to Z list of available data), and enhancing the site to make it even easier to find, interpret, and share data.
Want to know when data of interest to you are updated?
Sign up for e-alerts to get data updates tailored to your interests that are sent at regular intervals (weekly or monthly).
Data We're Adding
Over the next year, we'll be adding data on these topics, among others:
- Preterm Births
- Environmental Health (air and water quality, lead poisoning, etc.)
- Truancies, Suspensions, and Expulsions
- Youth Not Working and Not in School
As a kidsdata subscriber, you'll be the first to know when these data are added to the site.

What Other Data Should We Add?
The data we're adding were suggested during conversations we've had with kidsdata.org users statewide, from Shasta to San Diego. We’re keenly interested to hear what data you need to do your work on behalf of children in your community. In addition to what we’re adding and what’s now available, what other measures would you like us to consider offering through kidsdata.org? Please share your thoughts - on our Data Points blog, our Facebook page, or as a reply to this e-mail.
