What is the Kentucky KIDS COUNT Project?
The Annie E. Casey Foundation funds a KIDS COUNT project in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands. Kentucky Youth Advocates has been the Kentucky KIDS COUNT grantee since 1991. KIDS COUNT provides a detailed county-by-county picture of the condition of children in order to inform public debate and strengthen public action on behalf of children and families.
The KIDS COUNT Data Center houses the most up-to-date county and school district level data on Kentucky kids.

2013 County Data Book
Released in December 2013, the 23rd annual edition of the County Data Book introduces a new approach, ranking Kentucky counties on overall child well-being and on four domains critical to that well-being: economic security, education, health, and family and community strength. Each domain includes four indicators of well-being, for a total of 16 indicators. An opening essay highlights the need for stronger investments in Kentucky’s children.
