New Statistics on Child Welfare Available
Data from the Annie E. Casey Foundation's 2006 KIDS COUNT Data Book are now available in an online database. Users can access State-by-State profiles or compare specific data across multiple States. Results can be viewed as ranked lists, maps, or line graphs, or the entire data set can be downloaded as delimited text files. In addition, a free copy of the print Data Book can be ordered from the site.
The Federal Interagency Forum on Child and Family Statistics has released America's Children in Brief: Key National Indicators of Well-Being, 2006. Each year since 1997, the Forum has published this report that includes detailed information on the well-being of children and families. The Forum updates all data annually on its website and alternates publishing the more detailed report with a condensed version that highlights selected indicators. The Forum is publishing the Brief this year and will issue the more detailed report in July 2007.
