Make Kids Count in '99: Hawai'i Kids Count 1999 Data Book.
This Kids Count report examines statewide trends in the well-being of Hawaii's children. The bulk of this statistical report is comprised of indicator findings and is divided into four major sections: (1) family composition and resources, including children in poverty, family formation, births to teens, children in single-parent families, children with health insurance, and cost of shelter; (2) infancy and preschool years, including early prenatal care, low birth weight infants, infant mortality, fully immunized 2-year-olds, children at-risk for developmental problems, preparing for school, and child abuse and neglect; (3) early school years, including child deaths, children of working parents in after-school programs, academic progress of third graders, children with special needs, other educational measures in elementary years, and child abuse and neglect; and (4) adolescence and youth, including academic progress of eighth graders, other educational measures in secondary school years, high school graduation, healthy lifestyle, juvenile arrests for violent crimes, substance use, teenage pregnancy, abuse and neglect, idle teens, and teen violent deaths. Findings indicate that conditions have worsened in the percent of children in poverty, cost of shelter, low birth weight, children of working parents in after-school programs, child abuse and neglect (ages 6-11), academic progress of intermediate students, substance use, juvenile arrests for violent crimes, and idle teens. The report profiles demographics of Hawaiian children, outlines a vision for Hawaiian children's future, compares Hawaiian data to national data, and describes the methodology and data sources. (SD)
