Idaho KIDS COUNT Project, Boise.; Mountain States Group, Boise, ID.
This Kids Count data book examines county and statewide trends of Idaho children's well-being. The statistical profile is based on 14 indicators: (1) children under age 18 in poverty; (2) children in single parent families; (3) births with adequate prenatal care; (4) infant mortality rate; (5) births to mothers age 10 to 19 without prenatal care; (6) low birth weight infants; (7) death rate of children age 1 to 14; (8) high school graduation rate; (9) teens age 16 to 19 not enrolled in school who are high school dropouts; (10) births to unmarried teens age 10 to 19; (11) juvenile violent crime arrest rate; (12) teens age 16 to 19 not in school and not working; (13) teen violent death rate (age 15 to 19); and (14) child abuse rates. Several findings emerge from the analysis. About 16 percent of Idaho children live in poverty, and about 15 percent live in single parent families. About 70 percent of infants are born with adequate prenatal care, with an infant mortality rate of 8.2 per 1,000 births, and a child death rate of about 35 per 100,000 children. About 90 percent of Idaho twelfth graders graduate from high school. About 7 percent of live births occur to unmarried teens age 10 to 19; the juvenile violent crime arrest rate is currently 309 per 100,000 youths; and the teen violent death rate is about 72 per 100,000. Two appendices present a summary table, data sources, and indicator definitions. (KDFB)
