Risk and Reach

Child mobility

At 19%, Minnesota’s rate of child mobility is similar to the national rate of 21%. Rising mobility rates, particularly for low-income children, are cause for concern, as the lack of a stable residence has been found to hinder children’s academic, socio-emotional, and behavioral development.

Terms

Child mobility
Minnesota’s rate of child mobility is measured as the proportion of all children under age 5 who have moved in the prior year. This measure does not include migrant groups and is not the same as “highly mobile,” used to characterize homeless groups
