Annie E. Casey Foundation
Kids Count, a project of the Annie E. Casey Foundation, is a national and state by- state effort to track the status of children in the United States. By providing policymakers and citizens with benchmarks of child well-being, Kids Count seeks to enrich local, state, and national discussions concerning ways to secure better futures for all children. At the national level, the principal activity of the initiative is the publication of the annual Kids Count Data Book, which uses the best available data to measure the educational, social, economic, and physical well-being of children. This booklet is derived from the 2006 Kids Count Data Book, and contains an overview, graphics on national trends, charts on 10 key indicators, state-by-state data and rankings, data on children under age 6 in family-based child care, and contacts for state Kids Count projects.
