About KIDS COUNT

The Wyoming Community Foundation’s 2016 Wyoming KIDS COUNT Data Book shares data research to help improve the well-being of our state’s children. The findings can help direct policy and inform those working with and for our state’s children.

The research was funded by the Annie E. Casey Foundation whose KIDS COUNT project is designed to track the well-being of children in the United States by providing high quality data and trend analysis. The Wyoming Community Foundation is the proud KIDS COUNT grantee for Wyoming.
