State of Babies Yearbook 2019


A new report released by ZERO TO THREE and Child TRENDS, titled “State of Babies Yearbook 2019”, gives Rhode Island high marks overall for policies and programs which achieve good outcomes relating to supporting the healthy development and well-being of Rhode Island’s babies and toddlers.

While overall Rhode Island ranks very well compared to other states, there are several areas which show the need for improvement.

  • Our child welfare indicators are ranked in the lowest tier of all states.
  • We are listed in the improving category for some child health and basic needs indicators.


Certainly, we have more work to do and improvements to make. Please click here to see the Rhode Island rankings.

Thank you for your continued support of Rhode Island’s youngest and most vulnerable children.
