The Illinois Risk and Reach Report is a set of data tools that includes a comprehensive early childhood focused report and interactive website compiling analysis of child well-being indicators in relation to state investments in three domains:

  • Family Stability
  • Health
  • Early Care and Education

The Report will inform governmental and nongovernmental early childhood stakeholders who make policy and funding decisions. Data are visualized through tables and maps in three categories:

RISK — An analysis of 15 indicators representing risk factors that affect child well-being and development;

REACH — An assessment of the availability and distribution of 17 publicly funded programs and services by geography;

FISCAL SCAN — An analysis of public investments for families with young children comparing the most recent fiscal years.
