Since its first release 22 years ago, KIDS COUNT in Colorado! has become the most trusted source for data and information on Colorado children and is relied upon by lawmakers, community leaders and child advocates to inform policy debates and community discussions on issues impacting kids.

The Children’s Campaign released the 2015 report on March 23, 2015 at a news conference at the state Capitol with Gov. John Hickenlooper.

This year’s report, From Plains to Plateaus: Examining Child Well-Being Across Colorado Places, focuses on the obstacles and opportunities facing child well-being by community type. The report examines a variety of indicators by dividing Colorado’s 64 counties in four categories: urban, mixed urban, mixed rural and rural.
