A Valuable Resource for Researching Child Well-Being

A valuable resource for researching child well-being just got easier to use. A major overhaul of the Annie E. Casey Foundation’s KIDS COUNT Data Center has streamlined the process for accessing
hundreds of child well-being indicators related to education, employment and income, health, poverty and youth risk factors. The Wisconsin Council on Children and Families contributes information to the Data Center.

The Data Center includes indicators with information for the nation and for states, as well as for many cities, school districts, counties and congressional districts.

The KIDS COUNT Data Center includes tools allows you to create maps that compare child well-being in different geographies, and also create line charts and bar charts that display trends in child well-being over time. The maps and charts can be easily downloaded and included in your own publication or website.
