We know that today’s news and social media pummel you with all sorts of stories and information about the state of our culture and our world.  CYS knows that statistics only tell part of the story—behind every number and every percentage point is a person or a family.  We want to steer clear of both minimizing a problem and seeking shock value from mere numbers.

However, CYS does want to provide you with reliable statistics on issues you care about.  Here you will find information related to media, violence, marriage, justice, mortality, and other significant factors shaping the world of today’s youth. Please feel free to use these statistics in your talks or papers.
