This compilation of important youth development indicators presents a balanced picture of Connecticut’s youth, highlighting not only negative indicators such as poverty, risky behavior, and juvenile crime, but also positive indicators of youth development, such as adequate exercise and civic engagement. In so doing, it underlines the importance of collecting and analyzing data to effectively guide Connecticut’s youth down the path of positive development.

We envision a Connecticut that creates opportunity for everyone, not just the lucky and privileged few. Together, we can ensure a prosperous future for all of our children.
