About KWIC

The Kids’ Well-being Indicators Clearinghouse (KWIC) is a tool to gather, plot and monitor New York State children’s health, education and well-being indicator data in order to improve outcomes for children and families.

KWIC provides a holistic approach as it cuts across all service sectors and allows individuals and organizations with diverse missions to come together to improve outcomes for children and families.

KWIC uses the Touchstones framework that was established by the Council on Children and Families and its 12 member agencies. The framework is organized by six major life areas where each life area has a set of goals and objectives—representing expectations about the future, and a set of indicators–reflecting the status of children and families.
