New York State Profile of Young Children in Deep Poverty

Smith, Sheila; Granja, Maribel R.; Nguyen, Uyen T.

Young children in families experiencing deep poverty – those with incomes below 50 percent of the federal poverty line -- are likely to experience severe early adversities that contribute to poor health and education outcomes. This brief offers information about young children, age birth to nine, living in deep poverty in New York State, and about policies that could support their healthy development and success. It includes information about the state and county-level prevalence and characteristics of these children and recommendations for strengthening family and work support policies and developing new two-generation policies that could promote better outcomes for young children and families in deep poverty.
