Chil­dren are the nation’s great­est resource. There­fore, we must ensure that pub­lic poli­cies and com­mu­ni­ty insti­tu­tions are pro­tect­ing the invest­ments made in kids across the country.

To make this hap­pen, those that make deci­sions that affect the lives of chil­dren, those that tell the sto­ry of chil­dren and advo­cates who ampli­fy the voic­es of our youth, should have eas­i­ly-acces­si­ble data and sta­tis­tics on the well-being of kids and their families.

A new ani­mat­ed video shows how the KIDS COUNT Data Cen­ter equips state and fed­er­al leg­is­la­tors, child advo­cates, com­mu­ni­ty activists and jour­nal­ists with vital, cus­tomiz­able infor­ma­tion about chil­dren and fam­i­lies in their state, coun­ty, city, con­gres­sion­al or school dis­trict, as well as for the nation.

The KIDS COUNT Data Cen­ter puts the pow­er of data at its users fin­ger­tips so that indi­vid­u­als and com­mu­ni­ties are empow­ered to make a dif­fer­ence in the lives of children.

Watch the video and share with your friends and colleagues.
