2012 KIDS COUNT in Colorado!

KIDS COUNT is a national and state-by-state project of the Annie E. Casey Foundation to track the status of children in the United States. The Colorado Children’s Campaign produces KIDS COUNT 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-level 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 2012 KIDS COUNT in Colorado! report on March 27, 2012 at a news conference at the state Capitol. Lt. Gov. Joe Garcia joined us at the release.

This year's report, “The Importance of Place: Variations in Child Well-Being Across Colorado,” shows that where a child lives can substantially impact his or her chances for success. Modeled after the state child well-being comparisons published every year by the Annie E. Casey Foundation in the national KIDS COUNT Data Book, the 2012 KIDS COUNT in Colorado! report includes a Colorado Child Well-Being Index, which uses 12 measurable indicators to compare child well-being by county in the areas of health, education, and family and community.
