The Prevalence of Adverse Childhood Experiences, Nationally, by State, and by Race or Ethnicity

This issue brief uses data from 2016 National Survey of Children's Health to describe the prevalence of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) in children ages birth to 17.  This is important information as children with a higher number of ACEs are at higher risk for negative outcomes for mental health, health, and financial well-being. The brief includes charts of the number of ACEs children have by state, by region, and by race and ethnicity.
