The mission of the Annie E. Casey Foundation is “to
build better futures for disadvantaged children and their families in
the United States.”  One of the ways it does that is by packaging
data about America's children in a form that reporters can easily
access and use.  Hence, the “Kids Count State-Level Data Online

“This new database, launched in July 2005,
contains more than 75 measures of child well-being, including the 10
measures used in our annual KIDS COUNT Data Book. It includes the most
timely data available on Education, Employment and Income, Poverty,
Health, Basic Demographics, and Youth Risk Factors for the U.S., all 50
states, and D.C. Depending on availability, three to five years of
trend data is currently available for most indicators.

easy-to-use, powerful online database allows you to generate custom
reports for a geographic area (Profiles) or to compare geographic areas
on a topic (Ranking, Maps, and Line Graphs).
