To assist in the identification and sharing of best practices across counties, the County Comparison Bars are grouped into six categories based on population density (i.e., "Rural" or "Urban") and per capita income of families with children (i.e., "High Income," "Middle Income" or "Low Income"). Displaying county performance data in this manner allows users to quickly identify similar counties that are performing better in measures of children's well-being.
County performance for each indicator is illustrated by color. Red indicates that a county is in the bottom third; yellow indicates a county is in the middle third; and green indicates a county is in the top third of county performance on that indicator. In addition to using this page, users can also join the Scorecard's online discussion group to learn and share best practices in promoting children's well-being.
