1998 KIDS COUNT
KIDS COUNT in Colorado! is an annual publication of the Children’s Campaign, providing state- and county-level data on child well-being factors including child health, education, and economic status. The publication is used by lawmakers, community leaders, and child advocates to inform policy debates and community discussions on issues impacting kids.
The 1998 KIDS COUNT in Colorado report features county-level data in a new format. For the first time, the report includes 63 individual county report cards with county-level demographic, economic, health, education, and safety data that lets us know how children in each county are doing. Statewide data is reported in the same ways so that comparisons can be made easily. County-level trends for data in the report cards are indicated where appropriate, based on 1991, 1994, and 1996 data. Additional information on school enrollment, child abuse and neglect, and teen suicide is also included in this year’s report.1998 KIDS COUNT in Colorado!
