The Annie E. Casey Foundation publishes an annual KIDS COUNT Data Book, compiling the best data available on children and families in the nation and ranking every state on the well-being of its children. This year’s report spotlights the continuing decline of economic well-being for low-income children and families. According to the report, the official child poverty rate, a conservative measure of economic hardship, has increased 18 percent, or 2.4 million children, living below the federal poverty line between 2000 and 2009.
Children Now is The Annie E. Casey KIDS COUNT grantee for the state of California.
