Kids Count in Delaware: Fact Book, 1995.
Delaware Univ., Newark. Kids Count in Delaware.
This Kids Count fact book examines statewide trends in the well-being of Delaware's children. The statistical portrait is based on key indicators in four areas: single-parent families, births to teenage mothers, juvenile crime and violence, and education. Following brief sections on the state's demographics and economic status, the fact book details percentages for single mothers, single female heads of households, at-risk births, infant mortality, school dropout rates, and youth violence and drug arrests. The remainder of the report provides data tables for the state and each county in the areas of population, education, birth, economic well-being, juvenile arrests, and child safety. These are followed by additional tables detailing more specific indicators such as poverty rates, adequacy of prenatal care, leading causes of death by age, enrollment and dropout rates by race, and juvenile arrests by type of crime.
