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. Since its first release more than a decade 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 reasons Colorado children are prepared—or not—for school are many. Through KIDS COUNT in Colorado!, the Colorado Children’s Campaign shares data on the more than 1.1 million children and youth in Colorado’s 64 counties, focusing on those indicators in the first years of a child’s life that are linked to his or her success in school, and ultimately, in life. The 2004 KIDS COUNT in Colorado! report continues our commitment to “school readiness”— and to the Children’s Campaign’s mission of creating hope and opportunity in Colorado—one million children at a time.
