KidsCount in Colorado! 1999.
Staberg, Christine
This Kids Count report examines statewide and county trends in the well-being of Colorado's children. The statistical portrait is based on 12 indicators of well-being: (1) infant mortality; (2) low birth weight births; (3) immunizations; (4) child poverty; (5) early prenatal care; (6) child abuse deaths; (7) health insurance; (8) paternity establishment; (9) teen births; (10) teen suicide rate; (11) youth unemployment; and (12) high school graduations. The report begins with a discussion of progress toward the Decade of the Child goals set for the year 2000. The bulk of the report details county- and state-level demographic, economic, health, education, and safety data. County-level trends for data are indicated where appropriate, based on 1991, 1994, and 1997 data. The report's findings indicate that infant mortality, early prenatal care, percentage of young children who are fully immunized, paternity establishment, the number of children dying from abuse or neglect, teen birth rate, and teen suicide rate have all shown improvement since 1990. Low birth weight births and high school graduation rates have worsened during the 1990s. (KB)
