South Dakota Kids Count

South Dakota Kids Count is a project of the Annie E. Casey Foundation. The project collects and publishes data on demographics, health, education, economics, and the safety of children in South Dakota. SD Kids Count enables parents, policymakers, and advocates to work on the behalf of South Dakota children. State and local agencies also rely on Kids Count data to inform policy and planning. The following are resources publicly offered on the Kids Count website:

  4. Facts on KIDS - Specialized reports on childhood obesity, immunizations, and other indicators from recent years can be found here.
  5. Regional Districts - KIDS COUNT offers children and youth reports comparing South Dakota planning districts to each other and the state average.
