These Snapshots of America's Families offer a first look at the well-being of children and adults through the lens of the 1997 National Survey of America's Families (NSAF). Individually, the Snapshots highlight social and economic issues that are indicative of well-being. Together, they capture a picture of family life on the eve of policy changes, such as federal welfare reform, that are affecting how social services, health, and income support programs are designed and administered.
