KIDS COUNT factbook 2006-2007
Oklahoma Institute for Child Advocacy
(OICA) teams with the Oklahoma
Department of Libraries to make it's annual Kids Count report available on the World Wide Web. This report on the well-being of Oklahoma's children is made possible by a partnership of state and federal agencies, private consultants, businesses and other organizations concerned about the physical and emotional health of our youngest citizens.
The State Profile in the11th Oklahoma Kids Count Factbook focuses on the impact that adverse childhood experiences (ACE) have throughout the life of a person. In addition to the profile in the Factbook, five issue briefs explore the connection between traumas and family dysfunction suffered by children to health conditions years later.
The report also continues to track the benchmarks used to profile the status of children in our state: Birthweight, Births to Teens, Child Abuse and Neglect, High School Dropouts, Violent Crime Arrests, and Mortality.
