Minnesota KIDS COUNT

KIDS COUNT, a project of the Annie E. Casey Foundation, is a national and state-by-state effort to track the status of children in the U.S. By providing policymakers and citizens with benchmarks of child well-being, KIDS COUNT seeks to enrich local, state, and national discussions concerning ways to secure better futures for all children.

As the Minnesota KIDS COUNT grantee, Children’s Defense Fund-Minnesota works with the Annie E. Casey Foundation to locally release the National KIDS COUNT Data Book and policy reports as well as publish Minnesota-specific reports and an annual Minnesota KIDS COUNT Data Book. Additionally, CDF-MN updates Minnesota statewide and county-level data on the online KIDS COUNT Data Center.
