All Kids Count! Assessing the Well-Being of African-American, American Indian, Asian, and Latino Children.
Kids Count Minnesota, Minneapolis.; Children's Defense Fund-Minnesota, St. Paul.
This Kids Count data book examines trends in the well-being of Minnesota's African-American, American Indian, Asian, and Latino children. The statistical portrait is based on 22 indicators of child well-being: (1) attitudes about race; (2) housing patterns; (3) future plans; (4) social involvement; (5) park usage; (6) negative treatment; (7) bias crimes; (8) income and poverty; (9) working families; (10) housing; (11) healthy births; (12) births to teens; (13) health care; (14) children with special needs; (15) children planning to attend college; (16) school attendance; (17) basic standards test results; (18) graduation rates; (19) children involved in fights; (20) physical abuse; (21) out-of-home placements; and (22) injuries. Following an introductory section and a summary of state racial demographics, five sections of the data book examine indicators in the areas of social climate, economics and housing, health, education, and safety. Data are presented in tables, figures, and as summary information. Each section concludes with examples of current projects giving hope for future statistical improvement. Following the presentation of indicator data, a small section of additional tables chart a wide variety of additional indicators of child well-being by race, on an "as available" basis. The data book concludes with information on resources and data notes. (SD)
