|The Progress of Canadas
Children is the Councils portrait of children and youth in Canada.
The first part of the report assesses the important influences or inputs that
affect the development of children and youth. These environmental indicators
include family life, economic security, physical safety, community resources,
and civic vitality.
The second part assesses how well Canadas children and youth are doing by examining outcome or progress indicators such as health status, social engagement, learning, and the labour force profile of youth. Taken together, these indicators provide a snapshot of the well-being of children and youth in Canada and show how they are faring year by year.
The number of Canadian children going hungry is on the rise and shows no sign of letting up, according to the report. The Progress of Canadas Children 2002 says that approximately 75,000 families with children under the age of 12 reported being hungry in 1996 (the last year for which data are available) an increase of one-third from 1994.
