LANSING, Mich. — The latest Kids Count in Michigan Data Book ranks counties on 13 out of 15 indicators of child well-being. Each county is also ranked on indicators in the areas of economic security, health, family and community and education. The local and state data provide a rich source of information to answer the question: How our are kids doing?
The annual Data Book is released by the Kids Count in Michigan project. It is a collaboration between the Michigan League for Public Policy (formerly the Michigan League for Human
Services), which researches and writes the report, and Michigan’s Children, which works with advocates statewide to disseminate the findings. Both are nonpartisan, nonprofit advocacy
organizations concerned about the well-being of children and their families.
