Children in Poverty

The Census released poverty data yesterday and I'd like to pass along a link to a data source with over 90 key indicators of child and youth well-being,  The Child Trends Data Bank.  As an example of these data, here are figures showing poverty and other statistics for children from this page.  The data are also available in tabular form at the source:
