Kid with blocks.jpg
The Annie E. Casey Foundation has released its 2006 Kids Count: State Level Data Online. This rich database in easy to read charts provides a state by state and national comparison of information over the past five or more years. For example, one can view in each state the percent of teens not attending school and not working year by year from 1999 to 2003 for a trend line compared to national data.

The wealth of data covers ten areas including education, infancy, health, employment, teen risk behaviors, etc. These are broken into 75 subtopics with charts. Anyone preparing proposals or seeking a rationale or justification for program design will find valuable, authoritative data. All are free to use the information with attribution.

The report can be viewed online or a free copy can be ordered.
