A Child’s Day: 2003 (Selected Indicators of Child Well-Being) - This illuminating study uses U.S. Census data collected through the Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP) from 2003 to investigate the lives of children, from TV usage and household weekly reading times, to number of children receiving non-relative outside care.
