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 25 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.
This year more than ever, the need to know how our children were faring prior to the coronavirus will be critical to understanding the impact this pandemic had on our children and families. It will provide a benchmark against which we will measure our progress moving forward over the next several years.
As we look forward, we need to revisit how well our children are doing on existing issues and identify new emerging issues that will stretch our imagination to come up with workable solutions. If we say our children count, shouldn’t we be investing in proven programs and policy solutions to ensure they have the opportunity to succeed?
