Growing Up in North America: The Economic Well-Being of Children in Canada, the United States, and Mexico

According to a new report from the Children in North America Project — a partnership of the Annie E. Casey Foundation, the Canadian Council on Social Development, and the Child Rights Network in Mexico — half of all Canadians and Americans and one-third of Mexicans feel uncertain about their children's financial futures. Part of a series of reports that aims to build an improved knowledge base in the area of child well-being, the report, Growing Up in North America: The Economic Well-Being of Children in Canada, the United States, and Mexico (59 pages, PDF), found that rates of child poverty in North America are high compared to those in developed countries elsewhere, while food insecurity is a problem in all three countries, but especially in Mexico. The report is available in English, Spanish, and French.
