Quality data that is skillfully analyzed supports good public policy decisions.

Here are some ways you can use NC Child’s county-level data cards and resources to advocate for children and youth in your community.

  • Take them to a meeting with a policymaker to share facts about child well-being in her district.
  • Share them with your local networks to inform conversations about the well-being of children in your community.
  • Use them in a presentation to talk about child well-being.
  • Share them with local administrators (school board members, county managers, etc.)
  • Share with friends and family as a conversation starter.
  • Use them to describe the needs and opportunities of children in your community in grant proposals and reports.
