The State of Texas Children (SOTC) annual data book is part of the KIDS COUNT Project, a national and state-by-state effort to track the well-being of children. Texas KIDS COUNT provides data on more than 70 measures of child well being and is a resource to help create, implement, and encourage good policy and effective services to better the lives of Texas children. We want to provide conversation starters for policymakers, families at the dinner table, and colleagues at the workplace. We hope you will use the data to tell the story of your community and bring about positive change.
