Cincinnati launched a youth study about two years ago. Now some data from the research is being released.  

Official said there is no comprehensive information on local kids.  There are some regional numbers and most of it is focused on health statistics.

A Cincinnati Councilwoman and members of a youth commission are launching what they call a groundbreaking study on the city's youth.

Yvettte Simpson said the study will focus on six areas: crime, poverty and homelessness, education, workforce development, health and developmental opportunities.  

Simpson and several commission members announced the project during a City Hall press conference.
