North Dakota KIDS COUNT is a state and county-by-county effort to track the status of children in North Dakota. It is sponsored by the Annie E. Casey Foundation and supported by the Center for Social Research at North Dakota State University. By providing policymakers and citizens with benchmarks of child well-being, North Dakota KIDS COUNT seeks to enrich local and state discussions concerning ways to secure better futures for all children.

North Dakota KIDS COUNT is included in the National KIDS COUNT network of states. Each year, the national KIDS COUNT program publishes an assessment of children’s well-being in the United States. The annual KIDS COUNT Data Book looks at 16 measures of child well-being to make comparisons across states and over time. North Dakota KIDS COUNT tracks child well-being data to provide a quick comparison of nearly 100 state and county indicators.
