About this book

This book contains a series of articles that represent a broad range of viewpoints about how the use of social indicators affects child and family policy. The book discusses the use of indicators as an effective tool to change policy. A distinguished, international group of researchers and policymakers provide insights into the past, current and future use of good information to develop and change policy that improves the well-being of children and youth.

This book will be of value to policymakers, journalists, researchers and professionals working in the social sciences, humanities and health professions. It is one of the first efforts to link child well-being indicators to policies and services. It combines methodology issues with conceptual issues and actual experience, and looks on child well-being indicators from an effectiveness perspective.

Reviews

From the reviews of the first edition:

"This book offers important insights and sources of useful data for psychologists interested in contributing to the improvement of the life conditions of children. Most important, the text offers psychologists an opportunity to reflect on how they might contribute to the work that is needed for Americans to achieve the good and healthy society that Maslow (1943) envisioned as enabling its citizens to achieve their highest purposes." (Patricia T. Ashton, PsycCRITIQUES, January, 2007)
