The 2014 National KIDS COUNT Data Book marks 25 years of the Annie E. Casey Foundation bringing attention to national and state-level data on the well-being of children. The 25th edition examines two major areas: 

  1. Data from 1990, the first year the Data Book was published, compared to our most recent data. These comparisons demonstrate the major trends in child well-being over the past 25 years.
  2. Recent trends that compare data from years 2005 to 2012, and include state rankings. The recent trend data will show how kids were faring prior to the economic crisis, compared to how they are doing in the aftermath.
