Treasure Coast counties ranked for child well-being

Mike Winikoff writes:

"TREASURE COAST ― The Florida Policy Institute has released the 2021 Florida Child Well-Being Index. The annual study provides counties with an overall rank and measures performance across 16 indicators in four major categories: economic well-being, education, health, and family and community.


According to the FPI [emphasis added], counties with higher rankings tend to be well-resourced places, where families can afford to invest in things like high-quality child care, education, and other opportunities for their children. Counties that rank near the middle tend to have a mixture of well-resourced and less well-resourced areas. Counties with lower rankings tend to be places that “have borne the brunt of the state’s disinvestment in public services and where people face historic barriers to economic opportunity.”
