This report provides information on several characteristics of children, covering different aspects of their lives. The subjects that are included encompass: demographic characteristics of the child population of the United States and family living arrangements, including the presence of “coresident” grandparents; parents’ and children’s labor force participation, featuring new estimates of children living with “stay-at-home” fathers and mothers; and the economic status of children’s families, including participation in public assistance programs and health insurance coverage of children. Finally, the distribution of the child population by their nativity status and that of their parents illustrates the diversity of the youngest segment of our population.
