KIDS COUNT – NYS

Looking for KIDS COUNT Data Books and Special Reports?

Since 1997, the Council has been a member of the state-level KIDS COUNT network, supported with funding by the Annie E. Casey Foundation. A primary objective of the New York State KIDS COUNT project is to disseminate county-level data that focuses on child well-being in order to advance the use of children’s health, education and well-being indicators as a tool for policy development, planning and accountability. Utilizing a framework called New York State Touchstones, data from numerous state agencies are organized by six major life areas: Economic Security, Physical and Emotional Health, Education, Citizenship, Family, and Community. Each life area has a set of goals and objectives representing expectations about the future and a set of indicators reflecting the status of children and families. The Council produces an annual data book and special reports focusing on emerging and specific topics.
