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 the trends impacting their lives. The report is designed to provide user-friendly state and county data, help 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.
The 2011 report, “The Impact of the Great Recession on Colorado’s Children,” shows that the recession substantially impacted a wide range of Colorado children, including those who didn’t previously suffer from poverty and economic hardship.View Kids Count
