Make Kids Count in '95: Hawai'i Kids Count 1995 Data Book.
Hawaii Kids Count, Honolulu.
This KIDS COUNT statistical report is the first to examine indicators of children's well-being in Hawaii. The bulk of the report is comprised of the indicator results and is divided into four major sections: (1) family composition and resources, including children in poverty, children in single parent families, births to single teens, and children with health insurance; (2) infancy and preschool years, including births with low birth weight, infant mortality rate, school readiness, children at risk for developmental problems, immunization rates for 2-year-olds, and child abuse and neglect rates; (3) early school years, including child death rates, children of working parents in after school programs, fourth graders' academic progress, and children with special needs; and (4) adolescence and youth, including eighth graders' academic progress, high school graduation rates, teens not connected to any productive activity, substance use, teenage pregnancy, teen violent deaths, and juvenile arrest rates for violent crimes. County, gender, and ethnicity comparisons are made for some indicators. The report also provides a demographic profile of Hawaiian children, suggests additional indicators that would be useful in Hawaii, compares Hawaiian data to national data, and details the report's methodology and data sources.
