North Dakota Kids Count! Fact Book, 1994: Regional and County Profiles of Child Well-Being in North Dakota.
North Dakota Univ., Grand Forks. North Dakota Kids Count.
While many children across North Dakota enjoy positive life circumstances which support their healthy growth and development, many other children do not. This Kids Count factbook contains data on indicators intended to highlight the condition of North Dakota children from prenatal through adolescent stages of development; these indicators include population statistics, family composition, economic condition, child health, education, child safety, and risk behavior by teens. The book contains "Overview" and "Findings" sections designed to provide a framework for understanding categories of well-being and how North Dakota children are being impacted by indicators across counties. Regional data, pertaining to the eight Human Service Regions through which state program administration occurs, are then presented. Regional data profiles are self-contained, and are followed by county profiles for counties included in each respective region. An alphabetized list of North Dakota's 53 counties and a state map precede data sections, and definitions of important terms and information on data sources are also provided. (EV)
