Youth Indicators 2005: Trends in the Well-Being of American Youth - This document offers a picture of well-being of youth between 14 and 24 years old in various social contexts that may relate to youth education and learning, with sections on: (1) demographics; (2) school-related characteristics; (3) employment-related characteristics; (4) activities outside of school and work; and (5) health. Among the report's highlights: the number of persons 14 to 24 years old is expected to increase between 2000 and 2020, reflecting growth in the number of minority youth; and a performance gap in reading proficiency exists between 13- and 17-year-old white students and their black and Hispanic counterparts, although it is smaller than it was in 1975.
