2017 KIDS COUNT Data Book

The 2017 Virginia KIDS COUNT Profile delineates recent trends within the four domains of economic well-being, education, health, and family and community. Find out how kids in Virginia are faring by visiting our National Data page and Interactive Maps page. For more locality-level data, please visit our Virginia Data Center.

2016 Regional and Statewide Infographics

Each infographic represents a region of the commonwealth and gives a snapshot of how children are faring in the region and its localities.

The statewide infographic allows you to look at how children in your area are faring compared to children in the commonwealth as a whole.

What are some ways you can use these infographics?

  • Take them to a meeting with a policymaker to share facts about child well-being in his/her district.
  • Share them with your local networks to start a conversation on child well-being in your area.
  • Use them in a presentation to talk about child well-being.
  • Show them to your local elected officials (school board members, boards of supervisors, etc.).
  • Show them to your friends for a conversation starter.

Whatever way you choose to use the infographics, we hope you find them valuable.
