New York State 2012 Touchstones / KIDS COUNT Data Book Released

Now Available
NYS Touchstones/KIDS COUNT 2012 Data Book


The theme of the 2012 NYS Touchstones/KIDS COUNT Data Book is all data are local. This data book is very different from previous editions, in that it has incorporated county subdivision data within a map for every county in New York State combining data about children living in poverty along with community resources that support healthy development (e.g., locations of WIC, Early Head Start and Head Start programs, etc.). This new visualization can be used as a tool to more accurately depict our communities; educate fellow New Yorkers about the important issues that are impacting the daily lives of children; and guide our conversations and decisions around child well-being.

Additional county-specific data are provided with each county map, including a pie chart with age group distributions from the 2010 U.S. Census.
