County Profiles of Child and Family Well-Being: 1997 Statewide Summaries.
Washington Univ., Seattle. Human Services Policy Center.
These 41 Washington Kids Count summaries, one for each of the state's counties and major metropolitan areas, examine trends in the well-being of Washington's children. The summaries each begin with a look at the discrepancies in children's well-being within the state, by area. The statistical portrait is based on three general areas of children's well-being: education, health and safety, and economic well-being. Nine key indicators of child well-being are detailed: (1) eighth-grade math scores; (2) lack of prenatal care; (3) teen pregnancy; (4) child abuse and neglect; (5) juvenile arrests; (6) child poverty and inadequate income; (7) unemployment; (8) child care burden; and (9) average annual wages. Comparison data are presented and trends are analyzed. Also presented are specific county profile data in comparison to other counties. The summaries conclude with information on trends in child abuse by age and gender of the child, and domestic violence in each county and statewide. (KB)
