ZERO TO THREE Releases Report on Opportunity Disparities among Young Children

ZERO TO THREE recently released a new report on the status of infants and toddlers across the nation, providing an analysis of the disparities of opportunity. According to the report, 2 in 5 infants and toddlers live in families whose income was inadequate to make ends meet. As a result, many infants and toddlers—disproportionately babies of color—did not have preventive healthcare, adequate food security, or safe and stable housing. The report uses several indicators to assess the well-being of babies, including several housing indicators such as crowded housing, housing instability, and living in unsafe neighborhoods.
