Children of color and children in immigrant families–most of whom are also children of color–face multiple barriers to success. The Annie E. Casey Foundation explores these issues in this Race for Results policy report, which includes an index measuring how children are progressing on 12 key milestones. The index uses a composite score of these 12 indicators on a scale of one (lowest) to 1,000 (highest) to make comparisons. No state has all children in any racial group meeting all milestones. However, nationally Asian and white children tend to fare better as a whole, while Hispanic, Native American, and Black children are less likely to be meeting milestones. The fact sheet below shows how New Mexico scores on these indicators.
