Data

My Brother’s Keeper Task Force recommended that government make available and encourage adoption of critical indicators of life outcomes for boys and young men of color and their peers. The Task Force intends to work with the Federal Statistical Agencies to make these and other relevant statistics available at the national level. Additionally, the Task Force will work with state and local agencies, innovators and social entrepreneurs and other stakeholders to create new tools and resources that allow local communities to use their local data to understand and develop strategies to improve youth outcomes. The Task Force and the Federal Interagency Forum on Child and Family Statistics have collected federal statistics on a number of national level indicators to provide an initial snapshot of young people’s well-being across multiple domains, including health, nutrition, poverty, education, economic opportunity and more. Below we provide a selection of these statistical tables and data in several formats to make it more accessible for researchers, developers and the public. Link to Code for MBK page

A Note About Sampling

Many of the data sources used to produce the estimates in these tables collect information from samples of respondents as opposed to collecting information from all people or institutions in the population of interest. Estimates based on data from samples of respondents have associated sampling error. Sampling error accounts for the possibility of different samples being drawn, and how the different samples might result in different estimates. Sampling error must be accounted for when comparing estimates. Tables of estimates that are based on sample data will have an accompanying table of standard errors that need to be used in conjunction with the estimates to account for sampling error. To determine whether differences shown are statistically significant, two-tailed z or t tests at the 0.1 level of significance (90 percent confidence level) or 0.05 level of significance (95 percent confidence level) are typically used. For an example of how to compute the 0.1 level of significance, please see chapter 12 of the American Community Survey Design and Methodology (January 2014) report. For 0.05 levels of significance, use a z-score value of 1.96.
