Build Initiative - data indicators - 50 state chart book
From the web site: "For planning and policy purposes, state leaders need accurate information about the well-being of their youngest children and the services being provided to them. This information should include data pertaining to the population of children in the states as a whole and to different racial and ethnic groups. While available information can not sufficiently answer all questions state leaders may ask, administrative data sets, national surveys and census data provide a basis for understanding the current well-being of young children across health, social, developmental and economic realms – and for examining disparities that exist by race, ethnicity and income level.

The Fifty State Chart Book provides the available information compiled in a way that enables comparisons, by race, ethnicity and income level, both within and across states, of differences and disparities in well-being, service use and environmental conditions. The nineteen indicators in the Chart Book span various domains of well-being and offer a holistic picture of how children from different racial and ethnic backgrounds are faring."
