Kids Count Databook

The Annie E. Casey Foundation has gathered and published data about child & teen well-being for a little more than 20 years.  Several years of their annual publication can be found online or   print versions can be found in the Social Sciences & Humanities Library Reference collection (selected years only).   The databook is a quick snapshot of child & teen well-being for 10 key indicators.

The newest Kids Count Databook for 2010 has moved the data online into an interactive interface so that you can customize the information you want.    The 2010 data is also available at their Kids Count Data Center where you can access very detailed information and statistics about local communities, states or get a national picture.  Data available at the local level includes information for many cities, counties, & school districts.  At the Data Center, interactive maps let you create customized maps that show differences in outcomes  either within or across states.  Also, easily turn data into graphs that show trends over time.

The Data Center has a mobile friendly interface.  Access the data from your smart phone at http://mobile.kidscount.org/
