The State of Texas Children 1994: A County by County Fact Book.
Texas Kids Count Project, Austin.
As part of a nationwide effort to highlight the well-being of children in every state, Texas Kids Count is building a comprehensive database of indicators of child well-being to be used to produce annual data books and other analyses on the status of children in Texas. This report presents, county by county, data on several child well-being indicators. Following a foreword, the report presents an overview and findings, and county indicator maps for the following indicators: (1) percent low birthweight babies; (2) infant mortality rate; (3) child death rate; (4) percent of all births that are to single teens; (5) juvenile violent crime arrest rate; (6) teen violent death rate; (7) percent teens not in school and not high school graduates; (8) percent teens not in school and not in the labor force; (9) percent children in poverty; (10) percent children in single parent families; (11) unemployment rate; and (12) median household income. The bulk of the report presents fact sheets for each county detailing the above-listed indicators. Three appendices contain county rankings, data descriptions and sources, and federal poverty guidelines. (AMC)
