KIDSCOUNT, a project of the Annie E. Casey Foundation, is a national and state-by-state effort to track the status of children in the U.S. By providing policymakers and citizens with benchmarks of child well-being, KIDS COUNT seeks to enrich local, state, and national discussions concerning ways to secure better futures for all children. Many Colorado state agencies contribute data to this project.
The state-level data online system contains Colorado data for over 75 measures of child well-being. This easy-to-use, powerful online database allows you to generate custom reports for a geographic area (Profiles) or to compare geographic areas on a topic (Ranking, Maps, and Line Graphs). Just select “Colorado” in the Profiles by State box. Comparisons by topic and by state are available as well as raw data to download as delimited files.
The Colorado profile has indicators over a five year period in categories such as health, education, poverty, immigrant children, population and family characteristics, etc. From the state profile you can create a custom report and through CLIKS link to detailed county-level data and limited school district-level data.
Our library has the most recent “Kids Count in Colorado” report for 2006. (HCP1.12/2006) Holdings date from 1993 to the present for this report.
