This Kids Count report details statewide trends in the well-being of Vermont's children. The statistical portrait is based on 30 indicators of well-being: (1) population; (2) racial and ethnic diversity; (3) median family income; (4) working mothers; (5) single-parent families; (6) child poverty; (7) children receiving ANFC; (8) children receiving food stamps; (9) children eligible for food programs; (10) new families at risk; (11) poverty; (12) high school dropouts; (13) teens not working or in school; (14) educational attainment of adults; (15) prenatal care; (16) low birth weight babies; (17) infant mortality; (18) births to teens; (19) child deaths; (20) teen violent deaths; (21) child abuse and neglect; (22) domestic violence; (23) children in custody; (24) communities and youth; (25) index of schools; (26) sexual activity; (27) alcohol use; (28) tobacco use; (29) fighting; and (30) suicide plans. The report's first five chapters divide the data into the areas of: economic security; education; health; child protection; and a youth risk behavior survey. The report's final chapter provides county-by-county data including population, children and youth in custody, child abuse and neglect, child and youth health indicators, and economic indicator data. A major finding noted in the report is that poverty remains a critical children's issue in Vermont. (SD)
