Annie E. Casey Foundation
The Annie E. Casey Foundation's "2016 KIDS COUNT Data Book" finds today's youth--Generation Z--are healthier and completing high school on time despite mounting economic inequality and increasingly unaffordable college tuition. Aided by smart policies and investments in prevention, a record number of teens are making positive choices. This year, the annual report focuses on key trends in child well-being in the post-recession years and offers recommendations for how policymakers can ensure all children are prepared for the future, based on the country's shared values of opportunity, responsibility and security. The following are appended: (1) Child Well-Being Rankings; and (2) Data for 16 Indicators of Child Well-Being. Contains endnotes, an about the index section, definitions and data sources, and primary contacts for state KIDS COUNT projects. [The Population Reference Bureau was instrumental in the development of the KIDS COUNT index and in the collection and organization of data presented in this book. The publication was produced under the general direction of Laura Speer and Florencia Gutierrez. Other Casey staff who contributed to this report include Sue Lin Chong, Ryan Fox, Lisa Hamilton, John Hodgins, Michael Laracy and Norris West. Nancy Cauthen provided writing and research support.
