Beyond ABC


More than 100 years of caring for the children of North Texas has established Children’s Health℠ as not only the region’s leading pediatric health care system, but as a prominent authority and passionate advocate for the advancement of pediatric health throughout our communities.

Since 1996, Children’s Health has published Beyond ABC, an in-depth look at the quality of life for children in North Texas as measured by four powerful indicators: pediatric health care, education, economic security and safety. Beginning in 2015, we updated our format to feature in a single report six counties in the Children’s Health service area — Dallas, Collin, Cooke, Denton, Fannin and Grayson.


Beyond ABC is now published every other year in mid-November. To see the most recent reports, click on the links below:​
