North Dakota KIDS COUNT! Fact Book, 2001: State, Regional and County Profiles of Child Well-Being in North Dakota.
North Dakota Univ., Grand Forks. North Dakota Kids Count.
This KIDS COUNT fact book details statewide and county trends in the well-being of North Dakota's children. The statistical portrait is based on indicators of children's well-being in seven areas: (1) population; (2) family composition; (3) economic condition; (4) child care; (5) child health; (6) education; and (7) children at risk. The report begins with an overview of the data's organization, criteria for data selection, data presentation, and data limitations. The bulk of the report then presents data for 8 geographical regions of the state, followed by profiles for each of the state's 53 counties, including multi-year trend data. The final section provides indicators, definitions and data sources, and summarizes North Dakota KIDS COUNT project activities over the past 6 years. Important findings from the report include a decrease in the number of children in the state; increase in low birth weight babies but a decrease in the number of mothers receiving inadequate prenatal care; decrease in the number of child abuse and neglect victims; increase in the number of high school dropouts; and a decrease in the number of children in families receiving TANF, but an increase in the number of children eligible for Medicaid.
