2020 Kids Count Data Book
The 2020 Kids Count Data Book is newly available for use by researchers. Each year, the Annie E. Casey Foundation releases this important report about children in the United States. This edition of the Data Book assesses trends in the overall health and well-being of children before the coronavirus pandemic began, because of the lag time in statistics. In addition to offering summaries and select highlights, the website features an interactive map detailing state rankings in
- overall child well-being,
- economic well-being,
- health, and
- family and community.
The full report is available freely as a pdf download. Information on how the report is created, including definitions and data sources, is available towards the bottom of the website.
A highlight reads, “policymakers, researchers and advocates can continue using this information to help shape their work and build a stronger future for children, families and communities.”
