KIDS COUNT is a national and state-by-state project of the Annie E. Casey Foundation to track the status of children in the United States. By providing high-quality data and trend analysis, KIDS COUNT seeks to enrich local, state and national discussions concerning ways to secure better futures for all children — and to raise the visibility of children’s issues through a nonpartisan, evidence-based lens.
The KIDS COUNT Data Center maintains the best available data and statistics on the educational, social, economic and physical well-being of children. With data at the local, state and national levels, the Data Center features hundreds of indicators, many of which examine the effects of poverty and race on child outcomes.
The project also develops and distributes reports on key areas of well-being, including the annual KIDS COUNT Data Book, which uses the best available data to measure the educational, social, economic, and physical well-being of children state by state.
The Foundation also funds a national network of state-level KIDS COUNT projects, including Vermont KIDS COUNT, that provide a more detailed, county-by-county picture of the condition of children. Voices for Vermont’s Children is Vermont’s KIDS COUNT organization. KIDS COUNT state- and county-level data provides policymakers, legislators, state and local children’s advocates, researchers, students and you with key information about kids’ Economic Security, Safety, Health, and Education status.
