State Children’s Environmental Health Profiles

The Children’s Environmental Health Network is developing fact sheets that include indicators of environmental hazards, environmental exposure, and child health and development to provide an understanding of children’s environmental health at the state level.

To date, three fact sheets have been completed, for Michigan, Minnesota, and North Carolina. Through this process, CEHN found that robust, valid, and regularly updated state level data–that are comparable across most states–were not readily accessible. States need adequate funding and capacity to collect, and to make accessible, reliable children’s environmental health indicator data in order to set goals and track progress towards improving children’s health.
