Two-Minute Reviews: Videos Recap 2019 Data Book Findings

Two videos recap the 2019 KIDS COUNT Data Book

The Annie E. Casey Foundation’s 2019 KIDS COUNT® Data Book is here! With it comes two new videos that break down key data-dri­ven top­ics: how the child pop­u­la­tion has changed since 1990 and how states com­pare in areas of child well-being.

Watch it now: How has the U.S. child pop­u­la­tion changed since 1990?

This video tells how America’s child pop­u­la­tion has grown — and grown more diverse — over the last 30 years, as report­ed in the 2019 Data Book. The quick two-minute clip also reminds lead­ers and com­mu­ni­ties to invest in poli­cies that expand access to child tax cred­its and health insur­ance while pri­or­i­tiz­ing edu­ca­tion and address­ing racial and eth­nic disparities.

Watch it now: How the states com­pare in the 2019 KIDS COUNT Data Book

This video touts the great work under­way in the North­east, which is home to six of the top 10 states in over­all child well-being (includ­ing No. 1‑ranked New Hamp­shire). Run­ning just two-min­utes long, the clip iden­ti­fies nev­er-been-bet­ter nation­al sta­tis­tics (teen birth rates and high school grad­u­a­tion rates) as well as data that deliv­er mixed results (kids with­out health insurance).

Both videos end with a sim­ple mes­sage worth repeat­ing — that all kids have incred­i­ble poten­tial and deserve an oppor­tu­ni­ty to thrive.
