Data are critical as you work to find ways to serve communities in these challenging times and local data can provide a nuanced view of your county’s children and families. The NYS Kids’ Well-being Indicators Clearinghouse or KWIC is a resource for local and state planners who participate in the monitoring of health status to identify community health problems. KWIC offers unique ways to visualize county and regional data needed to promote healthy communities. The map builder tool incorporates many different geographic boundaries including library systems. There are educational and demographic data for these different boundaries. Additionally, we have incorporated social media features. The new visualization and social media tools allow us to more accurately depict our communities; educate fellow New Yorkers about important issues that are impacting children’s daily lives; and guide our conversations and decisions around healthy child development.
The participants will be able to:
Find their county data and click on their county report.
Identify 3 new features on KWIC for displaying and sharing data.
Use the map builder to find their community (& library system) and examine the well-being indicators.
