The health of our nation depends on the health and well-being of our children and families.

The Perspectives on Families in America survey, conducted by NORC at the University of Chicago with support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, explores the views of U.S. adults towards families with young children and their needs. This typology was created to discover the pattern of values and beliefs related to addressing those resource problems—low incomes, lack of access to affordable and healthy food, and lack of access to child care and preschool programs.
