State of Babies Yearbook
The story of America’s babies has never been more important.
The data presented in the Yearbook paint a clear picture: bold action is needed to address urgent needs of infants, toddlers, and their families.
As we look at the data provided in the State of Babies Yearbook: 2023, we see:
- The number of infants and toddlers continues to decline.
- The data tells us that diversity remains the hallmark of America’s babies, a source of strength and renewal.
- Poverty and disparities in access to resources along racial and ethnic lines continue to be defining features of a baby’s experience.
- The state where a baby is born and spends their first years also is a significant indicator as to whether a baby will have a strong start in life.
The State of Babies Yearbook: 2023 is part of ZERO TO THREE’s Think Babies initiative. ZERO TO THREE created Think Babies to make the potential of every baby a national priority. When we “Think Babies” and invest in infants, toddlers and their families, we ensure a strong future for all.
