This Snapshot presents findings on several parent-reported measures of child well-being from the 1999 National Survey of America's Families (NSAF) and compares these findings with data reported from the 1997 NSAF. These data are available for representative samples of the United States as well as for 13 states. Findings are discussed separately for adolescents and for younger children. In addition, this Snapshot compares the status of low-income children--those living in families with incomes below 200 percent of poverty in 1998--with that of higher-income children, whose family incomes exceeded 200 percent of poverty.
