Data by State (formerly CLIKS) or
The Annie E. Casey Foundation's KIDS COUNT® Data Book (23rd edition) includes a new index that increased from 10 to 16 indicators. These changes have created a more robust tool that better captures the full spectrum of child well-being and better serves the current needs of the field. The index includes the creation of four content domains that capture what children need most to thrive: (1) Economic well-being, (2) Education, (3) Health, (4) Family and Community. Each of the four domains is comprised of four indicators for a total of 16 data points.
The states were also ranked on each domain. The 2012 national KIDS COUNT Data Book profile for South Dakota:
