Kids Count in Indiana 2001 Data Book: County Profiles of Child Well-Being.
Erickson, Judith; King, Mindy Hightower
This Kids Count data book examines statewide trends in the well-being of Indiana's children. The statistical portrait is based on indicators in 10 general areas: (1) child and family demographics; (2) economic well-being; (3) poverty; (4) child safety; (5) child abuse and neglect; (6) education; (7) child health; (8) mortality; (9) high risk behavior; and (10) juvenile justice. The first part of the data book summarizes findings in the areas listed above. The data indicate an increase in single parent households, cases of child abuse, and infant mortality. The data also indicate a decrease in teen birth rates, high school graduation rates, cigarette smoking, alcohol consumption, marijuana use, juvenile arrest rates, and juvenile delinquency cases. The second section of the data book includes indicator definitions and data sources. The remainder and bulk of the data book contains state and county profiles for the indicators, with comparison data for the current year and a baseline year. (SD)
