New Children of Metropolitan St. Louis Report Offers Community Data on Child Well-Being

Vision for Children at Risk has released the 2017-18 Children of Metropolitan St. Louis report containing community data on over 40 indicators of child well-being. These indicators cover Family Support, Maternal & Child Health, Early Childhood Development, Quality Education, and Safe Neighborhoods & Strong Communities. Data is available by ZIP code across the City of St. Louis, St. Louis County and St. Charles County in Missouri, along with Madison and St. Clair counties in Illinois. This marks the 10th edition of this report first published in 1991.

The CMSL report also is important because it illustrates the wide disparities and inequities that exist in the St. Louis region between affluent, largely white areas, and poor areas with mostly minority populations.

Copies of the report may be purchased for $25 each plus $5 shipping and handling. Quantity discounts available.
