Kids Count in Michigan Data Book 2016: Child & Family Well-Being in Michigan its Counties and Detroit.
In Flint, Detroit, or your community, do kids count? In its 25th year of production, the 2016 Kids Count in Michigan Data Book examines 16 indicators of child well-being to see how children are doing. While some progress has been made in children’s health, poverty remains high along with the number of children living in families investigated for abuse or neglect. And, education indicators show that many of the state’s young children are not considered proficient in reading and writing. It’s time to put this data into action and for policymakers to prioritize children.
