America’s Youngest Outcasts: State of Child Homelessness
Posted by National Center on Family Homelessness on December 01, 2014
America’s Youngest Outcasts documents the number of homeless children in every state, their well-being, their risk for child homelessness, and state level planning and policy efforts. Using findings from numerous sources that include well-established national data sets as well as our own research, we rank the states in four domains, and then develop a composite of these domains to rank the states from 1 (best) to 50 (worst). A page about the District of Columbia is also available.
By rolling over each of the states in the map below, you can open and download the state page from the report that displays some of the key data used in ranking each state.
The complete report is available for download.
