Using data to improve child well-being in your county
ACNJ is again taking Kids Count on the road! At the Kids Count Regional Forums, you will work with other leaders, service providers and county officials to use Kids Count data to identify issues and formulate responses to the needs of children. This is a great opportunity to delve deeper into the data on a county level, while working with others in your county to produce action plans that can help improve the well-being of children in your county.
Kids Count event draws state and county leaders
We had a great event releasing this year’s reports – the county profiles and rankings, the pocket guide, which provides 5-year trend data on the county level and the state report. The event, held April 24 in Trenton, featured a special performance by children from the Millhill Child and Family Development Center.
Kids Count data can be viewed online here.
