Measuring the Economic Well-Being of Families and Children, 1999.
This Kids Count report assembles some of the indicators that describe the economic environment of Minnesota children and families. The report is intended to serve as a resource for policymakers at the city, county, and state levels, as well as community advocates, parents, and those who work with children. Section 1 of the report presents statistical findings for the following indicators for the state as a whole and for 11 economic development regions: (1) children and adults living in poverty; (2) per capita personal income; (3) minimum family income needed; (4) unemployment rate; (5) ratio of dependents to workers; (6) major industries and projected growth; (7) ratio of government payments to wages and salaries; (8) children's services spending per capita; and (9) revenue-raising capacity. Section 2 is organized by region and outlines trends in each indicator from the middle to the late 1990s. The report concludes with information on data sources and definitions. (KB)
