Kids Count in Missouri, 1996 Report.
Citizens for Missouri's Children, St. Louis.
This report is published for the purpose of improving the well-being of Missouri's children by heightening awareness of children's issues within local communities and by promoting more effective responses to children's needs throughout the state. The report documents the status of children in all 115 Missouri counties. Following an Executive Summary that reports areas of improvement, stabilization, and deterioration; and a state profile, the report presents county maps for the following indicators: (1) "Missouri Minority Profile"; (1) "Students Enrolled in Free/Reduced Lunch"; (3) "Births to Mothers Without High School Diploma"; (4) "Low Birthweight Infants"; (5) "Infant Mortality"; (6) "Deaths of Children, Ages 1-14"; (7) "Probable Cause Child Abuse"; (8) "Out-of-Home Placement Entries"; (9) "Annual High School Dropouts"; (10) "Births to Teens, Age 15-19"; and (11) "Violent Deaths, Ages 15-19". A brief report, "Four Years of Making Kids Count in Missouri" is then presented, discussing the changing landscape for Missouri's children and an agenda for Missouri's children put forth by the Citizens for Missouri's Children. The bulk of the report presents county-by-county profiles detailing the above-listed indicators. Three appendices present raw data, data notes, and county rankings. (AMC)
