County Profile of Child and Family Well-Being: 1996 Statewide Summaries.
Washington Univ., Seattle. Human Services Policy Center.
These 37 Washington Kids Count brochures, one for each of the state's counties and major metropolitan areas, examine statewide trends in the well-being of Washington's children. The reports begin with a statewide summary that points out the discrepancies of children's well-being within the state by area. The statistical portrait is based on three general areas of children's well-being: education, health and safety, and economic well-being. Nine key indicators of child well-being are: (1) eighth-grade math scores; (2) lack of prenatal care; (3) teen pregnancy; (4) child abuse and neglect; (5) juvenile arrests; (6) child poverty and inadequate income; (7) unemployment; (8) child care burden; and (9) average annual wages. Comparison data are presented and trends are analyzed. Also presented are specific county profile data in comparison to other counties. The reports conclude with county and state comparison data and ethnic distribution data. (SD)
