DC KIDS COUNT Data Tool 2.0 updated with newly released 5-year American Community Survey estimates for 2010-2014
Five years of data collected between 2010 and 2014 provide statistics on more than 40 economic, housing and well-being indicators, including commuting, educational attainment and home value. As the nation’s largest ongoing household survey, the American Community Survey produces statistics at all levels of geography, down to the block group level.
The American FactFinder provides access to these data about the United States, District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the Island Areas. The data in American FactFinder catalog previous censuses and surveys.
We are constantly looking ways to improve and expand the DC KIDS COUNT Data Tool 2.0, which continues to be a critical data source and information for public officials, community organizations, parents and other stakeholders making key decisions that impact children and their families.
We will be releasing in-depth analysis in the coming weeks on the new trends we are seeing for children and their families. Stay tuned!
This update would NOT be possible without the partnership of DATAKIND DC, and our volunteers Chris Givens, Elaine Ayo, Janet Montgomery, and Max Richman. Without their support and guidance, this work would not be possible. And HUGE HUGE shout out for Josh De La Rosa, Aaron Schumacher and Josh Tokle who began this particular project in 2013 and created the coding to continue this effort!
