KIDS COUNT factbook 2009
The latest publication on the well-being of Oklahoma's children includes an introduction to the Kids Count Data Center. This Community Level Information for Kids (or CLIKS) lets users create their own charts, graphs and maps for states, the nation, or individual counties.
The Oklahoma Institute for Child Advocacy has teamed with the Annie E. Casey Foundation to provide this comprehensive online tool to provide information about children and families living in our state and communities, allowing the generation of custom reports at no cost to the user.
