Kids Count in Indiana: 1995 Data Book.
Erickson, Judith B.
This Kids Count report is the second in a series examining statewide trends in the well-being of Indiana's children. After an introduction and an explanation of the statistics, sections of the statistical report contain data on several indicators of well-being: (1) Indiana's children and their families, including population estimates, ethnicity, and households; (2) economic well-being, including overall unemployment, youth in the labor force, and youth unemployment; (3) poverty, including poverty rates and utilization of programs to assist poor families; (4) child abuse and neglect, focusing on fatalities, the child protection system, and the Marion County consent decree; (5) education, including high school graduation, dropouts, retention, at-risk programs, and education reform; (6) health and well-being, including prenatal care, low birthweight, immunizations, lead poisoning, and health insurance; (7) infant, child, and teen deaths; (8) high-risk behaviors during the teen years, including sexual behavior, pregnancy, sexually transmitted diseases, and substance use and abuse; and (9) juveniles and the law, focusing on the Uniform Crime Report, and teens as victims. The report concludes that statistical indicators suggest that the well-being of Hoosier children and adolescents is not improving much overall, and in some areas, is worsening. The report's appendix presents indicators, data sources, and county-level data tables. (Contains approximately 100 references.) (KB)
