Download our app for this year’s Annie E. Casey Foundation KIDS COUNT Data Book, which explores trends on key areas of child well-being using the latest data for every state, the District of Columbia, and the nation. Sixteen indicators of child well-being are organized into four domains that capture what children need most to thrive—Economic Well-Being, Education, Health, and Family and Community. The app enables you to easily scroll through the state-by-state data, focus on infographics, and learn about action you can take to improve the chances of future success for all children in the United States.
KIDS COUNT®, a project of the Annie E. Casey Foundation, is a national and state-by-state effort to track the well-being 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 Annie E. Casey Foundation is a private charitable organization, dedicated to helping build better futures for disadvantaged children in the United States. It was established in 1948 by Jim Casey, one of the founders of UPS, and his siblings, who named the Foundation in honor of their mother. The primary mission of the Foundation is to foster public policies, human-service reforms, and community supports that more effectively meet the needs of today’s vulnerable children and families. In pursuit of this goal, the Foundation makes grants that help states, cities and neighborhoods fashion more innovative, cost-effective responses to these needs.
