About this book
This book contains a series of articles that represent a broad range of viewpoints about how the use of social indicators affects child and family policy.

A distinguished, international group of researchers and policymakers provide insights into the past, current and future use of good information to develop and change policy that improves the well-being of children and youth.
This book will be of value to policymakers, journalists, researchers and professionals working in the social sciences, humanities and health professions. It is one of the first efforts to link child well-being indicators to policies and services.
