Community Information & Data
This new tool makes it easier for civic, nonprofit and philanthropic leaders to develop programs and policies aimed at improving outcomes for local children at risk for poverty, neglect and abuse. It surfaces the top issues facing Tarrant County youth from birth to 18 and recommended key solutions. The report identifies economic stability, literacy rates at third grade, infant mortality and child maltreatment as primary areas to focus attention.
The State of Texas Children report is a part of the Kids Count project, a national state-by-state effort to track the status of children in the U.S. funded by the Annie E. Casey Foundation. The report shows that historical and current policies have created and maintained unequal opportunities and large disparities in child poverty across race, ethnicity and gender.
