America's Children, 2013 is a compendium of indicators highlighting the latest data and recent trends on children and their families prepared by the 22 federal agencies of the Federal Interagency Forum on Child and Family Statistics. The 16th in an ongoing series, America's Children, 2013 contains 41 key indicators on important aspects of children's lives and features 7 domains—family and social environment, economic circumstances, health care, physical environment and safety, behavior, education, and health. All indicator tables and figures are available online at childstats.gov.
Among the findings in this year's report: the percentage of infants born preterm dropped, as did births to adolescents and the percentage of children with recent exposure to secondhand smoke; however, there was an increase in the percentage of 12th-graders who reported binge drinking. The percentage of children living with at least one parent employed year round full time rose, and the percentage of children with no usual source of health care fell.
