The National Council of La Raza has released the Latino Kids Data Explorer, a free interactive tool that allows users to search for specific data on Latino children.
The tool, which is paired with an infographic and fact sheet, uses 27 national and state-level indicators of Latino child well-being, spanning the categories of demography, health, education, housing, income, and juvenile justice. It allows users to choose an age group and time period for the range of information. The data can be compared across states and racial groups. Tables can be printed or downloaded from the user-friendly platform.
Education categories include national assessment data and enrollment information for federal and local early-childhood programs. The tool is available at www.nclr.org.
