Where Kids Count, Place Matters: Trends in the Well-Being of Iowa Children, 2000-2001.
Focusing on the influence of impoverished environments on child outcomes, this Kids Count report examines trends in the well-being of Iowa children. The first section of the report presents an overview essay detailing the presence and location of high risk and moderate risk census tracts in Iowa, based on information from the 2000 Census using children and family measures. The second section presents a statistical portrait, by county, based on data for the following indicators of well-being: (1) infant mortality; (2) low birthweight births; (3) births to 16- to 17-year-olds; (4) teen unmarried births; (5) child abuse and neglect; (6) high school graduation rates; (7) child deaths; and (8) teen violent deaths. The third section of the report presents 1990 and 2000 Census data, by county, for indicators including population age 16-19 not employed or in school, household income, households receiving public assistance, single parent families, family poverty, and preschool enrollment.
