The State of Babies Yearbook is an annual publication from Zero to Three that features a number of metrics related to the health and well-being of the nation’s youngest inhabitants. Data points like number of children living in poverty, number of babies born preterm, and number of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) combined with information about each state’s policies around Medicaid, paid family leave, and other programs serving families paint a picture of how young children and their families are faring. This resource is downloadable as a PDF, but also features an interactive website that highlights key findings and allows users to easily view information by state.
