Iowa Kids Count 2009: Trends in the Well-Being of Iowa Children
Child and Family Policy Center
This latest annually produced Iowa Kids Count data book, "Iowa Kids Count 2009: Trends in the Well-Being of Iowa Children," provides data on 18 different indicators of child and family well-being at the United States, Iowa, substate and county-level. The 18 indicators presented in the data book contain an expanse of data from economic, welfare, education and health areas including child poverty, child abuse and neglect, high school graduation and low birthweight. These indicators provide an extensive cross-section of data and information for policymakers, researchers, educators and others to use. Of the 18 indicators included in this year's data book, 10 have shown slight or moderate improvement while the other eight have shown slight to significant deterioration at the state level primarily from 2000 to 2009. This reflects a slight improvement from the previous year's data book which showed a few more indicators deteriorating than improving during the 2000 to 2008 time period.
