This report compares early health, development, and risk indicators for young children in deep poverty to indicators for young children in other income groups. The results show that young children in deep poverty experience exceptional challenges that make them vulnerable to poor long-term outcomes. The report also highlights large disparities in the prevalence of deep poverty across five racial/ethnic groups, nationally and state by state.
