When Texas children are safe, healthy, and educated, Texas thrives. Ensuring that kids do well today ensures that we all do well tomorrow. From 2000 to 2010, Texas accounted for half of the U.S. child population growth, which means when Texas kids do better, the U.S. does better.

Kids Count is a national and state-by-state effort to track the status of children in the U.S. funded by the Annie E. Casey Foundation. Every Texan is the home of the Texas Kids Count Project.


The KIDS COUNT Data Center shows how kids are faring on over 70 different measures of child well-being. You can observe changes over time, create maps and graphs, compare your location to others, and obtain data for grant proposals from trusted data sources. Indicators include:

  • Economic well-being
  • Education
  • Health & Nutrition
  • Demographics by age, gender, race and ethnicity
  • And more!
