Supporting Young Children: Addressing Poverty, Promoting Opportunity and Advancing Equity in Policy

"Young children are the most likely to experience poverty among all age groups in the U.S. Although slightly reduced from recent years, the number and proportion of children under age six who experience poverty has remained consistently high through the economic recovery that followed the Great Recession, when child poverty increased significantly. In 2015, one-fifth of all children under age five, or 4.2 million young children, lived in poverty"
