Annie E. Casey Foundation Releases 2013 KIDSCOUNT Data!

KIDS COUNT®, a project of the Annie E. Casey Foundation, is a national and state-by-state effort to track the well-being of children in the United States. By providing high-quality data and trend analysis, KIDS COUNT seeks to enrich local, state and national discussions concerning ways to secure better futures for all children - and to raise the visibility of children's issues through a nonpartisan, evidence-based lens.

The data shows that Pennsylvania still struggles with education and economic well-being of children compared to other states and the overall health ranking for children and families in PA fell from 8th best in the country to 22nd for 2013.

The Data Book tracks 16 indicators of children's well-being in the U.S. You can order a copy or download the PDF.
