The 23rd edition of the Kids Count in Nebraska Report continues to offer a visually-oriented data in each of Voices for Children’s 5 issues areas: health, education, child welfare, juvenile justice and economic stability. Each year we build upon the report to hopefully improve the most comprehensive source of data on child well-being in Nebraska with each new release.
In addition to the same data that has been included year after year, you will find a few new pieces of data. This year’s report is also joined by our new online county data tool – Kids Count NEteractive. All of the data that is available by county at the end of the Kids Count in Nebraska Report is also now featured on our interactive map tool on our website
We are especially excited this year for our commentary: Equality before the Law: An Index of Race & Opportunity for Nebraska Children. This index provides a composite score of 13 predictors of opportunity for children by 6 racial/ethnic groups.
Join us on the blog the next several Fridays for our blog series on the commentary and throughout the year for data highlights from this year’s Kids Count in Nebraska Report.
