This project developed of a set of indicators to measure and track child, family, and community well-being over time. Primary activities included: 1) engagement with the multi-agency representatives of the Governor's Children's Cabinet to identify priority areas and indicators, 2) development of data to populate/update selected indicators, and 3) refinement and maintenance of a website to disseminate data and information about the indicators. The website provides a single point of entry for the public, scholars, and policymakers interested in data and information about key indicators of child well-being in Maine.
