Annual Reports

The First Annual Report on the Condition of Children in Orange County was developed in 1993 and provided information and data on 28 indicators describing the status of Orange County's children. The stated purpose of the report was "to provide a comprehensive picture of the present condition of children in Orange County and to establish a baseline from which to measure future progress and track changing conditions." Currently, the report has been expanded to include 40 indicators, but the purpose of the report remains the same.

The indicators in all reports are presented in four sections –

  1. Good Health
  2. Economic Well-Being
  3. Education Achievement
  4. Safe Homes and Communities

Each section opens with a vignette to illustrate an Orange County child and family. This gives a real life perspective that numbers cannot fully portray. Each indicator is defined with the findings and trends and is presented along with a discussion as to why the indicator is important and what is happening in Orange County. Additional data and information on most indicators can be found at the back of the report in the Supplemental Tables and Appendices. CCC continues to make this information accessible to the public by supplying the links below. Quick Guides are also available in these links as a user-friendly version of the report’s key indicators.

CCC’s reputation as a fair and accurate organization regarding the conditions of children in Orange County Report is measured by the evolving improvement of indicators that are presented. In keeping with tradition whenever possible the report continues to record ten years of historical data to demonstrate trends and outcomes.
