  2. New Info on the Status of Child Well-Being in Virginia

    Voices/KIDS COUNT’s new report “Status Report: Child Well-Being in Virginia January 2013” profiles five domains of child well-being: poverty/economic security, early childhood, health, education and child welfare/safety.

    Each domain contains reliable data on a set of indicators, many of which can be compared to national data. This permits us to monitor trends in child well-being over time and also to compare Virginia children to their counterparts nationally. We compare current data to the same data from 2006 or in some cases even earlier. The latest data available on many indicators is from 2011, which gives us at least a five-year span in which to evaluate progress or decline.
