North Dakota Kids Count! Fact Book, 1995: State, 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 others do not. This Kids Count fact book presents a statistical portrait of the condition of North Dakota children from prenatal through adolescent stages of development, based on key indicators. These indicators include population statistics, family composition, economic condition, child health, education, child safety, and risk behavior by teens. Wherever possible, the 1995 Fact Book updates data reported in the previous year's book, to provide continuity in comparison of indicators. The book begins with an overview section containing brief definitions for each indicator in respective categories; a state profile and analysis for each category; and"Significance" boxes discussing the impact of indicators on the condition of children. 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, which are arranged in alphabetical order. 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)
