2015 Kids Count Data Book
Posted by Annie E. Casey Foundation on August 10, 2015
The Annie E. Casey Foundation has published the 2015 edition of its Kids Count Data Book.
The report is an annual publication that assesses child well-being across the 50 states, as well as in the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. Using an index of 16 indicators, the report ranks states on overall child well-being and in economic well-being, education, health and family and community.
The report focuses on America’s children in the midst of the country’s economic recovery. While data show improvements in child health and education, more families are struggling to make ends meet, and a growing number of kids live in high-poverty neighborhoods. In addition to ranking states in several areas of child well-being, the report also examines the influence of parents’ education, health and other life circumstances on their children.
