With the Annie E. Casey Foundations 2022 KIDS COUNT® Data Book and Our Children Oregon’s coinciding Oregon KIDS COUNT® Data Cards being released last month, Our Children Oregon has received a lot of attention from news and media outlets.
The Oregon KIDS COUNT® Data Cards, providing important state and county-level context with nearly 20 additional data indicators, shed light on the health, economic, education, community, and environmental challenges impacting children in Oregon. They also point to how such challenges disproportionately affect children of color and other marginalized identities, abilities, and backgrounds.
This press has enabled us to reach more people and communities while highlighting the state of Oregon’s Children and ensuring unbiased and high-quality data about child well-being is accessible to the public, advocates, and policymakers through the production and promotion of the Oregon State & County Data Books.
