The Annual Report has four goals:

  • To serve as a benchmark to measure how children are faring over time.
  • To serve as a catalyst to mobilize community-wide efforts to address the most critical challenges to children’s success.
  • To recognize areas in which services and initiatives have been successful in improving children’s quality of life in order to maintain support for these efforts.
  • To present information on multiple indicators in a simple arrangement and in a useful format and location.
