Making Sure KIDS COUNT: Data as a Tool for Improving Child Well-Being
KIDS COUNT is the premier source for data on child and family well-being in the United States. Kids Count uses data to help focus policies that improve child wellbeing, particularly for children who face significant obstacles to opportunity. Through the KIDS COUNT Data Center you can access hundreds of indicators, download data, and create reports and graphics that support smart decisions about children and families.
Nancy Wagman is the Kids Count Director at the Massachusetts Budget and Policy Center (MassBudget). She is also MassBudget’s senior health policy and budget analyst, responsible for MassBudget’s Budget Browser and Children’s Budget – online tools that allow users to analyze and understand the Massachusetts state budget.
Nancy’s presentation will focus on the Kids Count Data Center, and will introduce MassBudget’s other useful data resources.
