The Changing Faces of Arkansas' Children. Special Report.
This special Kids Count report provides information on the changing demographic characteristics of children in Arkansas, based on data from the 2000 Census. Current and trend data are detailed by county for child population growth between 1990 and 2000, child percentage of the population, and child population growth by race or ethnic group. Completing the document are tables delineating percent change in the child population by ethnicity and county between 1990 and 2000, as well as 2000 child population by county and race. Key findings indicate that the Arkansas child population increase lags behind the total population increase, with the percentage of children in the population decreasing. Larger counties have more racially diverse populations than smaller counties. The Hispanic child population increased 330 percent between 1990 and 2000. (KB)
