Children's Scorecard: 1995-1999

January 1, 2002

The data and trends in this ScoreCard show mixed results over the past five years. We celebrate progress in
some areas?many of which appear linked to improved economic conditions?but are concerned about lack
of progress in others. Clearly, more effective action is needed. We also recognize the limitations of available
data. The Data Partnership for Children and Families, an important new arm of the Children?s Planning Council, will help us improve our efforts to strengthen and assist the SPA/AIC Councils and communities throughout Los Angeles in their efforts to translate data into action? and into better results for children and families.
