The State of Texas Children 2000 (01/1/2000)
The State of Texas Children: 2000 is part of a series produced by the Texas Kids Count project to report
on the status of children and their families in Texas. Texas Kids Count reports are tools used by
policymakers, service providers, and advocates to support positive programs and policies for children.
Texas Kids Count is unique because it provides detailed profiles about the status of children for every
county in the state. This information is used in planning for services and programs at the local level as
well as the state level. Texas Kids Count is recognized by planners and policymakers across Texas as the
best source of statistics on the well-being of children.
