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 data, helping decision makers and advocates understand the challenges and opportunities facing children statewide, and focus attention and resources on the areas where they are needed most.
This year’s report, “The Big Picture: Taking the Whole Child Approach to Child Well-Being,” highlights issues impacting kids that overlap policy areas. The report makes connections between the Children’s Campaign’s longstanding issues areas – early childhood, health, and K-12 education.View Kids Count
