Contents Notes
Introduction -- Children's Health: A New Conceptual Framework -- Influences on Children's Health -- Measuring Children's Health -- Measuring Influences on Children's Health -- Developing State and Local Data Systems -- Conclusions and Recommendations. "Children's Health, the Nation's Wealth provides a detailed examination of the information about children's health that is needed to help policy makers and program providers at the federal, state, and local levels. In order to improve children's health - and, thus, the health of future generations - it is critical to have data that can be used to assess both current conditions and possible future threats to children's health. This book describes what is known about the health of children and what is needed to expand the knowledge. That knowledge, in turn, can inform strategic planning to improve the health of children ensuring healthier future generations."--BOOK JACKET.
