Key Facts about Children in Utah. Children and Families at Risk: A Status Report of Our Children, 1994.
Utah Children, Salt Lake City.
The Utah KIDS COUNT program provides information about child well-being to enhance discussions on securing better futures for children. Indicators of children's quality of life are chosen to reflect a range of influences on children, conditions across developmental stages, and comparisons across time. Ten indicators examined included: (1) low birth-weight babies; (2) infant mortality; (3) child death; (4) births to single teens; (5) juvenile violent crime arrests; (6) graduation from high school; (7) teens not in school and not employed; (8) teen violent deaths; (9) children in poverty; and (10) children in single-parent families. This indicator data is summarized in tables by county on a topical basis including: (1) "1993 Utah Families: Demographics and Economics" which addressed poverty, income, hunger, taxes, homelessness, and housing; (2) "1993 Child Protection" which examined abuse, neglect, foster care, adoption, and domestic violence; (3) "1992 Maternal and Child Health" which examined pregnancy, births, low birth weight, infant death, child death, WIC participation, health care access, family planning, disabilities, infectious disease, AIDS/HIV, and sexually transmitted diseases; (4) "1993 Juvenile Justice" which addressed juvenile court, gang activity, and youth corrections; and (5) "1993 Mental Health" which studied mental illness, hospital inpatient discharges, and substance abuse.
