The remainder of the factbook presents state and county profiles based on the above listed indicators. The statistical findings show the following: a decrease in the trends of child population, teenage birth rate, the number of children receiving economic assistance, teen violent deaths, and infant mortality; an increase in the trends in the number of dropouts, poverty, percent of low birth weight babies, and babies born to unwed mothers.
