Abstract:

This report, prepared jointly by the UCLA Center for Healthier Children, Families and Communities, the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research, and the Public Health Institute, is the first of its kind to reveal key measures of health and well being for California's three million children under age 6.
Using data from the 2001 California Health Interview Survey (CHIS 2001), the report examines overall health status, access to quality health and child care services, special needs and disabilities, oral health, asthma, nutrition, and important early experiences for young children such as reading and attending preschool for young children in California. The study examines these indicators for young children related to the economic characteristics of the child’s family, ethnicity, place of residence and insurance coverage. The report covers major urban and rural counties throughout California. The development of the report was funded by First 5 California.
