2003 CENSUS EDITION of the Oklahoma KIDS COUNT Factbook uses the
latest decennial census data (Census 2000) to provide the most
comprehensive state and county demographic information available
about Oklahoma’s children, including population, gender,
race and Hispanic/Latino origin. Additional indicators displayed
from Census 2000 were chosen to capture the wide range of conditions
that shape the lives of children ... as individuals, in their
families and in their neighborhoods.
federal Census 2000 provides a once in a decade opportunity to
assess and display the rich and complex picture of Oklahoma’s
children ... establishing a new baseline for the twenty-first
century, and beyond.
this one year and this one edition, the Oklahoma KIDS COUNT Factbook
breaks with its established tradition of tracking benchmarks measuring
the well-being of Oklahoma children over time and across counties
to provide a reference useful to Oklahoma policy makers and advocates
for the next several years.
Oklahoma Institute for Child Advocacy
has partnered with the Oklahoma
Department of Libraries to make this important document available
for download on the web.
