Race for Results- Progress of Children in America

Dr. Franklin D. Gilliam, Dean Professor of Public Policy and Political Science at UCLA, joined us live to discuss the new Race For Results report/index on Children’s Progress in America.

The Report is one of the only studies to disaggregate data on child well-being by state; race/ethnicity; and by racial and ethnic subgroups. This index allows for comparison across geography and different measures of well- being, which makes for “apples-to-apples” comparisons. Race for Results ranges from 0 to 1000 for ease of comparison and serves as a bench-marking scorecard on child well-being that can be replicated over time. It can drill down on specific topics and places in the future. Is a tool for thoughtful and more precise public and private decision making?
