Iowa Kids Count Quarterly, v1 n1-Jan 1998
This document is comprised of the eight consecutive issues of a newsletter of the Iowa Kids Count Project. The newsletter provides information about work undertaken by the Project, other important information on trends in child well-being, and updates on research and data development activities of interest on child and family issues. The Spring 1992 issue focuses on Iowa's national ranking on indicators of child well-being, the results of a policy priority poll, an editorial on developing a child-centered vision for Iowa, and information sources on children' well-being. The Summer 1992 issue discusses the effect of concentrated urban poverty on child well-being and recent state data on poverty rates. The Winter 1993 issue describes welfare reform efforts in Iowa. The Summer 1994 issue presents 10-year trend data on Iowa general fund spending between fiscal year 1983 and 1992, emphasizing programs serving children and families. The Winter 1995 issue examines teen childbearing, including trends and its consequences, and strategies for reducing its incidence. The April 1997 issue examines recent trends in demands on the Iowa juvenile justice system, reviewing current programming for youth, and discussing policy options available to Iowa's lawmakers. The January 1998 issue describes how Iowa taxes affect children and families. (KB)
