The KIDS COUNT Fact Book is an integral part of the Foundation's effort to profile the condition of children nationwide. KIDS COUNT IN DELAWARE has published a 1998 Fact Book to provide a benchmark for the children in our state. We will use this reference tool to accurately measure Delaware's commitment to its children. The facts and figures contained in this report are reliable and objective. Using the Fact Book as a guide, policy makers, grass-roots organizers, parents and educators can assess family well-being, track trends and measure outcomes and meaningful change over time.
