The Annie E. Casey Foundation has just released its new, upgraded KIDS COUNT Data Center, which looks like a treasure trove of statistics and analysis. As the press release notes, KIDS COUNT “now includes downloadable profiles, rankings, maps, trend lines, and raw data for U.S. cities and states.” Also included:
• Child well-being indicators for the 50 largest cities in the United States as well as data for San Juan, Puerto Rico.
• State- and city-level data for over 100 measures of child well-being, including all the measures in the annual KIDS COUNT Data Book.
• The most recent data available on education, employment and income, poverty, health, basic demographics, and youth risk factors for all 50 states plus D.C., Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.
• Data used for The Right Start for America’s Newborns project, which reflects eight measures for giving children a healthy start in life.
• Exclusive online access to state-level child poverty rankings.
