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.
See the links to the right for all of our KIDS COUNT resources.
View and download the 2013 County Data Book here. Due to an error in data processing and an error from the data source, smoking during pregnancy state and county rates (pp 44 & 45) and out-of-home care county rates (pp 46 & 47) were updated July 2014. Though the rates changed only slightly for counties, some counties’ Health and Family and Community rankings and Overall rankings moved several spots because of the number of counties clustered close together.
