This KIDS COUNT factbook presents statistical data and examines trends for several indicators of children's well-being in Vermont. Four groups of indicators are examined: (1) economic security, including child population, child poverty, number of children receiving Aid to Needy Families with Children (ANFC) and food stamps, number of children approved for free and reduced lunches, and regulated child care slots; (2) education, including number of dropouts; (3) family health, including child deaths, teen violent deaths, infant mortality, low-birthweight babies, prenatal care, new families at risk, and births to teens; and (4) child protection, including child abuse and neglect and children in custody. Section 1 of the report, "Introduction," introduces Vermont KIDS COUNT and gives an overview of the indicators. Section 2, "Overview and Findings," defines the indicators and presents statistical data for each of them. In addition, a summary of 1990 census indicators is included that relates to ethnic and racial diversity, median family income, children in single-parent families, working mothers, teens not in school and not in the labor force, and educational attainment of adults. Section 3 of the report, "County by County," presents the trends of indicators for each of the 12 counties of the state. Finally, the appendix includes notes on statistics and methodology. (AA)
