In a series of papers published in NAM Perspectives, “Vital Signs for Pediatric Health,” a collaborative of The Forum for Children’s Well-Being introduces four crucial metrics that measure the physical, cognitive, and socio-emotional health of children across different developmental stages.

These papers provide valuable insights into pediatric health and offer a standardized set of core metrics that can support health systems in identifying areas that require attention and intervention. By leveraging these four metrics, communities and policymakers can promote the well-being of children throughout their developmental journey, while also helping to address disparities.

The papers were supported in part by funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
