KIDS COUNT Data Center

The KIDS COUNT Data Center is an online, searchable database with hundreds of state-by-state and county-level indicators on children’s well-being. The KIDS COUNT Data Center provides both Illinois and National KIDS COUNT indicators. Not only can you search for data by state, but you can also compare data across states and nationally. The powerful database allows you to create customized tables, graphs, and maps.
