County Profiles of Child and Family Well-Being: 1999 Statewide Summaries.
Washington Univ., Seattle. Human Services Policy Center.
These 43 Washington Kids Count summaries, one for each of the state's counties, major metropolitan areas, and the state as a whole, examine trends in the well-being of Washington's children. The summaries each begin with a report on economic prosperity within the state and region. The statistical portrait is based on three general areas of children's well-being: education, health and safety, and economic well-being. Eight key indicators of child well-being are detailed: (1) fourth-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) average annual wages; and (8) child care burden. Comparison data are presented and trends are analyzed. Also presented are specific county profile data in comparison to the state. The summaries conclude with information on trends in student enrollments and projections for 1998-2004, and ethnic distribution of the child population within the region. (KB)
