Woman playing with baby and child

When the Annie E. Casey Foundation published its first KIDS COUNT Data Book in 1990, there were 64 million children in America. Now, almost three decades later, there are close to 74 million. That’s millions more young lives with boundless potential and infinite worth. Millions more contributors to our economy, our communities and our nation.

This 30th edition of the Data Book examines how America’s child population has changed, demographically and geographically.
