For Delaware Kids to Lead the Nation in Child Well-Being Measures

The Annie E. Casey Foundation has released the 2020 edition of the KIDS COUNT® Data Book, an annually published resource that tracks child well-being nationally and state by state and ranks the states accordingly.

As always, the report is based on the latest available data for 16 key indicators. For the 2020 report, those data are 2018, so they do not reflect current conditions amidst the COVID-19 crisis. The Casey Foundation plans to explore the effects of the pandemic on child well-being in a future report but is releasing the annual Data Book as usual to ensure legislators and other policymakers, researchers and advocates for children have the information they are customarily able to access at this time of year.

KIDS COUNT in Delaware offers an annual companion piece to the national Data Book. What Would it Take? calculates the changes – in both numbers and percentages – required for Delaware to be the best state in the nation for children to call home. This year, Delaware ranks 27th overall (26th in the economic well-being domain, 30th in the education domain, 29th in the health domain and 25th in the family and community domain).
