This Kids Count data book presents statewide trends in the well-being of Louisiana's children. The statistical profile is based on key indicators of well-being in nine areas: (1) child poverty; (2) children in families receiving welfare services; (3) maternal and child health; (4) juvenile offenses; (5) public education; (6) child abuse and neglect; (7) mothers in the labor force; (8) child care assistance; and (9) family income. The introduction provides an overview of the central findings related to child poverty, child care, child health, and children in trouble; makes recommendations for state action; and describes new promising efforts to assist children and families. The bulk of the data book details the findings on each indicator for each parish, delineated by race. The data book concludes with parish rankings on five key indicators and data notes and sources.
