Virginia KIDS COUNT Data Book, 2003.
This Kids Count data book details statewide trends in the well-being of Virginia's children. The statistical portrait is based on indicators of child well-being in five areas: healthy births, adolescent well-being, health and safety, education, and economic security. Specific indicators examined are: (1) births to single women; (2) early prenatal care; (3) infant mortality; (4) low birth-weight babies; (5) births to teenage girls; (6) intake involving juvenile delinquency; (7) juveniles arrested for violent crimes; (8) teen violent deaths; (9) child abuse and neglect; (10) child deaths; (11) children in foster care; (12) child day care capacity; (13) high school dropouts in grades 9-12; (14) students eligible for special education services; (15) students promoted in grades K-3; (16) children in families receiving TANF; (17) per capita income and median income; (18) students approved for free or reduced price school lunch; and (19) unemployment. Following an essay on assessing school readiness, the data book presents data for 1995 and 2001, by county, for each of the indicators. The data book concludes with 53 endnotes and a list of data sources. (HTH)
