Texas once again ranks in the bottom third of states in a state-by-state study of our children's well-being, according to the 2011 National Kids Count Data Book, released August 17, 2011, by the Annie E. Casey Foundation.

This year’s data book, "America's Children, America's Challenge: Promoting Opportunity for the Next Generation," examines how children and families are faring in the wake of the recession and proposes a two-generation strategy: strengthening families in order to support children now and create opportunities for the future.
