Focus on the First Years: Well-Being for Baltimore County’s Youngest Residents

About This Project

Maryland counties are required by the state to assess the health-, social-, and protective-service needs of their resident children, youth, and families as part of an ongoing strategic-planning process. The resulting reports, which might be described as “report cards of children’s health,” describe the current status of a variety of indicators of health and well-being in the given county, compare the county to similar, neighboring counties, and present an improvement plan. A project of this sort involves not only locating, analyzing, and presenting relevant data from the U.S. Census Bureau, various state and county agencies, and research journals and other secondary sources, but also planning, organizing, and conducting focus-group research, telephone polling, and strategy meetings between representatives of county agencies and departments. This particular report, released in 2005, was prepared for Baltimore County, Maryland. (For InterGroup Services, Inc..) :: PDF ::
