2011 KIDS COUNT in Colorado!

KIDS COUNT is a national and state-by-state project of the Annie E. Casey Foundation to track the status of2011 KIDS COUNT children in the United States. The Colorado Children’s Campaign produces KidsCount in Colorado! as part of that project. Ours is an annual data initiative to assess and share information about the well-being of Colorado’s children and trends that are impacting their lives. The report is designed to provide user-friendly state and county data, helping decision makers and advocates understand the challenges and opportunities facing children statewide, and focus attention and resources on the most vulnerable children.

The Children’s Campaign released our 2011 KIDS COUNT in Colorado! report on March 10, 2011 at a news conference at the state capitol. Governor John Hickenlooper and Lt. Governor Joe Garcia joined us at the release.

This year’s report, “The Impact of the Great Recession on Colorado’s Children,” shows that the recession substantially impacted a wide range of Colorado children, including those who didn’t previously suffer from poverty and economic hardship. The report contains some of the earliest data of its kind in Colorado and in the nation about the impacts of the recession on children’s lives.
