Each year, VOICES for Alabama’s Children publishes the Alabama Kids Count Data Book, the most trusted source of research on child well-being for all 67 counties in Alabama.

For more than 20 years, the Data Book has served as both a benchmark and roadmap for how children are faring and is used to raise visibility of children’s issues, identify areas of need, set priorities in child well-being and inform decision-making at the state and local levels.

As we celebrate this 25th edition of the Data Book, we want to reflect on where we started and how far we have come in our journey to improve the health and well-being of Alabama’s children. We ask ourselves: What has changed for children in Alabama in the past 25 years? 

If you have any questions about the data or supporting documents, please call us at 334-213-2410 x 103.
