Data on Kids in WI

Kris Adams Wendt, Public Library Consultant for Wisconsin Valley Library Service shares some great info with state youth consultants and we share it with YOU. Kris writes:

I ran across Wisconsin Council on Children and Families changes name to Kids Forward during my morning media scan and wondered how many around the YSANDSN table were aware of this organization and the work they do.

When you have a minute, I encourage you to poke around the Kids Forward website, paying particular attention to the WisKids Count page
      WisKids Count tracks, analyzes, synthesizes, and communicates data about the health and well-being of children and families in Wisconsin. WisKids Count is a part of the Annie E. Casey Foundation’s Kids Count project which seeks to enrich local, state and national discussions concerning ways to secure better futures for all children.

      The Kids Count Data Center provides access to a wide range on data on indicators of child well-being in Wisconsin. Using the tools in the Data Center, you can easily create a profile of your county or school district. For more information on how to use the Kids Count Data Center, see our instructional presentation.
