The New Kidsdata: Same Great Data – Easier to Use

You may have seen the site already, but we think it's big news: has been completely redesigned to make it quicker and easier for you to find, customize, and use data on more than 500 measures of children’s health and well being in California.

  • Now it’s easier to customize tables and charts by location, year, age, race/ethnicity, and more. For example, see the list of regions on the left, and the options to edit just above any graph:


  • Every topic on has a new summary page, which spotlights key indicators, shows all data available, and describes the significance of each topic and its policy implications. For example, see the Asthma summary page.

About Kidsdata

Kidsdata was launched in 2004 by the Lucile Packard Foundation for Children's Health to make trustworthy information easily accessible to policymakers, service providers, grantseekers, advocates, media, parents, educators, and others who influence children's lives.

The site covers all counties, cities and school districts in California, and offers the ability to overlay legislative district boundaries on any data map. Kidsdata is used for grant proposals, reports, program and policy decisions, media stories, advocacy work, and more.
