KIDS COUNT in Missouri 1999 Data Book.
Citizens for Missouri's Children, St. Louis.
This Kids Count Data Book examines statewide trends in the well-being of Missouri's children. The statistical portrait is based on the following indicators of general areas of children's well being: (1) students enrolled in free/reduced price lunch program; (2) births to mothers without a high school diploma; (3) low birth weight; (4) infant mortality; (5) child deaths; (6) child abuse; (7) out-of-home placement; (8) high school dropouts; (9) births to teens; and (10) teen violent deaths. Following an executive summary and brief profile of the state and its minority populations, the second section of the report provides information on the state as a whole by indicator. The third section focuses on successes made since the start of the reporting process, which began in 1993. The fourth section, and bulk of the report, provides data by county as follows: (1) outcome measures; (2) date of data; (3) number of children who meet the outcome measure definition; (4) rate of children who meet the outcome measure definition; (5) trends; (6) state rank; (7) county rank; (8) county trends; and (9) programmatic or demographic information indicators.
