Maine Children's Alliance, Augusta.
This Kids Count report details statewide trends in the well-being of Maine's children. The statistical portrait is based on indicators of children's well-being in four areas: (1) social and economic opportunity; (2) community and family environment; (3) physical and mental health; and (4) education. The report's introduction describes the goals and future plans for Kids Count, and the indicators addressed. The second section presents statewide data, including a national comparison where available. The third section, and bulk of the report, presents a demographic profile for each of the state's 16 counties, and the county data, including a comparison to the statewide averages and changes from the 1994 report, for the 18 indicators of child well-being. The 18 indicators are: (1) children in families receiving Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC); (2) children receiving subsidized lunches; (3) children on Medicaid; (4) births to unmarried teens; (5) prenatal care; (6) low birth-weight; (7) infant mortality; (8) number of physicians; (9) dentists; (10) children in foster care; (11) child deaths for ages 1-14; (12) teen deaths; (13) teen violent deaths; (14) child suicide; (15) arrests; (16) dropout rate; (17) post-secondary education rates; and (18) children with special needs. Definitions and data sources used in completing the report are appended. (SD)
