KIDS COUNT is a project of the Annie E. Casey Foundation to track the status of children in the U.S. At a national level, one of the principal activities of the initiative 
is the KIDS COUNT Data Book, which identifies key ingredients important for a successful transition to adulthood, measures them, and releases them with the 
hope of providing a greater understanding of the opportunities and challenges 
facing our nation's children, and inspiring action.

child well-being one would expect given our economic climate? Have the policies 
and programs currently in place had an impact on child outcomes? Are North 
Dakota's children on a path to successful adulthood? The Data Book helps us answer these questions.
