South Dakota Kids Count Factbook, 2000.
Cochran, Carole
This Kids Count fact book examines statewide trends in well-being for South Dakota's children. The statistical portrait is based on 26 indicators in the areas of demographics, health, education, economic status, and safety. The indicators are: (1) population; (2) family profile; (3) poverty thresholds; (4) infant mortality; (5) low birth weight rate; (6) child death rate; (7) teen violent death rate; (8) births to single teens; (9) prenatal care; (10) immunization rates; (11) school enrollment; (12) dropout rates; (13) children with special needs; (14) poverty rates; (15) TANF and food stamp use; (16) Medicaid participation; (17) child care availability; (18) per capita personal income; (19) women in the workforce; (20) median household income; (21) juvenile offense referrals; (22) child abuse and neglect; (23) youth related traffic accidents; (24) juvenile drug and alcohol treatment admissions; (25) youth tobacco survey; and (26) youth risk behaviors. The first part of the fact book presents introductory materials and a fact book summary. The major portion of the report presents state and county data tables for each indicator. Among the findings, the fact book shows that infant and child deaths decreased, high school dropouts increased, the number of children living with parents without full-time, year-round employment increased, and the portion of South Dakota children living in poverty had decreased. The report concludes with a section listing data resources, Web sites of interest, information on performing data calculations, and interpretation instructions. (SD)
