Child Health Statistics
All pediatric nursing professionals, regardless of role, are in a unique position to educate and advocate for optimal child health. Below are statistics to inform your daily practice and create opportunities for dialog with colleagues, students, new nurses, parents, caregivers, children, and teens.
An exceptional comprehensive source for a variety of statistics is the Annie E. Casey Foundation annual KIDS COUNT Data Book. Another in-depth resource is The New Importance of Children in America from the Lucile Packard Foundation for Children's Health and the Children's Hospital Association.
