Today, Rhode Island KIDS COUNT released its twenty-sixth annual report on the well-being of Rhode Island’s children and families.

The 2020 Rhode Island Kids Count Factbook charts improvements and declines in the well-being of children and youth across the state and in each of Rhode Island’s 39 cities and towns. The publication provides the latest available statistics on different aspects of children’s lives, from birth through young adulthood, with a core focus on equity.

The information presented in the 2020 Rhode Island Kids Count Factbook can help our state and local leaders and policymakers make well-informed policy decisions that support the well-being of all children and families in Rhode Island during this current public health crisis and every day. For more information, please see the media release and executive summary

The Factbook is also an important tool to inform the work of nonprofit organizations, educators, and everyone working on behalf of children and families. Regardless of our individual roles, we have a shared responsibility to work together to improve the lives of children, youth, and families.
