This chartbook was compiled by SHADAC for the Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota to highlight how Minnesota is doing on a number of key indicators of child health. It draws on data from a variety of sources to look at how Minnesota’s children fare in terms of health insurance, health care access and use, health status, and health behaviors. Where possible, comparisons are made within regions of the Minnesota, to neighboring states, and to national averages. October 2010.
