The Connecticut Association for Human Services has released the 2004 Connecticut KIDS COUNT Data Book, Investing in Families...Investing in our Future, which highlights data and policy information related to family economics.
"Connecticut's 2004 Data Book is hopeful - most kids in the state are doing well," says Jude Carroll, the Connecticut KIDS COUNT project director at CAHS, "but future economic success for the state will require responsible planning to take Connecticut to the next level."
The Data Book focuses on a specific set of measures that relate to Family Economic Security issues: child poverty, family income, parental employment, homeownership, and more. The report features census and state agency data, recent trends in measures, and policy implications related to the findings.
CAHS is the Connecticut grantee for the Annie E. Casey Foundation's national KIDS COUNT initiative.
