Children in the States Factsheets 2014 (Children’s Defense Fund)

These factsheets provide basic statistics and rankings regarding poverty, health, hunger, child welfare, early childhood development, education and youth at risk for children in each state. The hope is that providing key state and national data in a concise uniform format will enable readers to see how their own state is doing, look at neighboring states and the national average, and then urge their elected officials (at the federal, state, and local level) to do more for children.

Data for the Children in the States fact sheets are the most current available as of March 20, 2014.
