KS Kids Count LogoThe KIDS COUNT project in Kansas is a joint effort by the Annie E. Casey Foundation and Kansas Action for Children. KIDS COUNT provides an annual snapshot of how Kansas children are doing when compared to their peers on the national, state and county levels. For nearly 20 years, KIDS COUNT has been a crucial resource for Kansas legislators and community leaders interested in data-driven solutions that will make Kansas the best place to live, work and raise a family.
