In December 2008, for the first time since the 2000 Census, the U.S. Census Bureau released demographic and socioeconomic data estimates for mid-sized cities and towns. Through the American Community Survey, the Census provided three-year average estimates for the period of 2005-2007 for cities and towns with populations of 20,000 or more.

This data sheet summarizes city and town data on child and family well-being for 29 cities and towns, including people under the federal poverty level (FPL), children below FPL, children under 200% of the FPL, median family income, homeownership, and residents with a bachelor's degree or higher. (Note: Since these are the first of the ACS three-year average estimates for these cities and towns, there are no directly comparable, earlier data available to evaluate change over time.)
