ZERO TO THREE released their 2021 edition of the State of the Babies Yearbook, a national and state resource that tells the story of America’s babies through three key domains: Good Health, Strong Families, and Positive Early Learning Experiences. The Yearbook takes a look at substantial disparities and inequities in babies’ experiences when examined by race/ethnicity, income, and geographic setting. Data collected during the pandemic shows how the crisis affected families with infants and toddlers. The Yearbook can be used by policymakers and advocates to identify and advance policies that babies and families need to thrive.
