Kids Count in Washington is a partnership between Children's Alliance and the Washington State Budget & Policy Center to help improve young lives. We are the go-to resource for data on kids and families in Washington state, and have a new and improved Data Center.

The new KIDS COUNT Data Center will allow you to:

  • Learn how children are faring in Washington state by county, major city, or compared to other states;
  • Easily find the most recent data for children and families on economic security, health, education, safety and risk, and demographics;
  • Make customized data reports, maps, charts, and tables for a specific county or region; and
  • Stay connected to KIDS COUNT in Washington and other organizations working on child and family issues at home and throughout the country. 


For more information on Washington state's kids and families, check our recent publications, the 2013 National KIDS COUNT Data Book and 2013 State of Washington's Children report.
