2014 KIDS COUNT Data Book

July 22, 2014

The 2014 KIDS COUNT Data Book — the 25th edition of Casey’s annual report bringing attention to the well-being of America's children — is now available. The Data Book examines how U.S. kids have fared since 1990, finding gains in child health, safety and education. It also raises concerns about the development of children living in low-income families and high-poverty communities. In addition, the report takes a look at the latest data, ranking states using 16 key indicators in the areas of economic well-being, health, education, and family and community. Massachusetts, Vermont and Iowa rank at the top for overall child well-being, while Nevada, New Mexico and Mississippi are at the bottom.
