Kansas Kids Count Data Book, 1996.
Kansas Action for Children, Inc., Topeka.
This 1996 Kids Count data book presents data on 20 indicators of child well-being in Kansas, grouped into 6 areas: economic well-being, physical health and safety, educational achievement, early childhood care and education, emotional well-being, and social behavior and social control. The data are grouped by county for each indicator, by indicator for each county, and by indicator for the state as a whole. The report indicates that data improved in eight areas: (1) high school graduates pursuing post-secondary education/training; (2) births to mothers with less than a high school degree; (3) Head Start participation; (4) births with early prenatal care; (5) childhood death rate; (6) infant mortality; (7) use of drugs by youth; and (8) availability of licensed child care. However, data worsened in six other areas: (1) births to single teens; (2) low birth weight babies; (3) students graduating high school; (4) teen violent deaths; (5) juvenile arrests; and (6) children approved for free school meals.
