CHILDREN AT RISK continues to expand on our assessment of the quality of life for children in Houston and across Texas with our 14th edition of Growing Up in Houston, published in March 2017. This book provides a collection of graphic representations of more than 75 quality of life indicators. By focusing on the critical issues facing our children, we are able to provide a wealth of information concerning youth in our community. The data in this volume illustrates that, while some progress has been made toward the improvement of life for our children, there is still room for improvement and growth.
