This KIDS COUNT data book details statewide trends in the well-being of Maine's children. Following a brief overview of the data book and a summary of indicators, state trend data are presented in the areas of: (1) poverty; (2) child and adolescent suicide; (3) public high school dropouts; (4) teen pregnancy; (5) public high school graduates planning to attend post-secondary education; (6) individuals aged 3-21 with disabilities; (7) infant mortality; (8) domestic assault reports; and (9) arrests of children aged 10-17. County trend data are reported for the areas of children in poverty, 1998; school children receiving subsidized school lunch, 2000-2001; and unemployment, 2000. The bulk of the report presents Maine state and county profiles based on a variety of indicators in the areas of: (1) physical and mental health; (2) social and economic opportunity; and (3) education and learning. Measures showing definite improvement include infant mortality rate, low birth weight rate, child and teen deaths, teen violent deaths, number of uninsured children, arrests of children 10-17, and the teen pregnancy rate. Measures found to need immediate attention include number of child residents of homeless and emergency shelters, child abuse and neglect, child and teen suicide rate, and number of children with disabilities. The report concludes with definitions and sources of data. (SD)
