Weitzel, Susan L.; Shockley, Cindi C.; Miranda, Barbara
This Kids Count report examines state and countywide trends in the well-being of Florida's children. Demographic information is presented along with a statistical portrait for the state and for each county based on the following indicators: (1) birth, including births to unwed mothers, teen births, early prenatal care, low birth weight, and infant mortality and deaths; (2) well-being, including child deaths, teen violent deaths, dissolutions of marriage with children affected, and child abuse and neglect; (3) youth and the law, including delinquency, juvenile detentions, and transfers to adult court; and (4) education, including graduation rate, non-promotions, dropouts, disciplinary actions, academic performance on standardized tests, and students eligible to participate in free/reduced lunches. The bulk of the report presents state and countywide data on demographic information and the indicators for 1997-98. Thirteen appendices list state- and countywide data, with some indicators listed by race or age categories. The report concludes with information on terminology and data sources. (SD)
