Children's report card (web site) | Database details

Updated county-by-county information on the well-being of Minnesota’s children is available online from the Children’s Report Card, a Minnesota Planning database, at The interim information includes updates of 13 of 26 indicators and adds juvenile population estimates for 1998. A new feature enables users to quickly access data published in the 1994, 1996 and 1999 Children’s Report Cards to show a trend line. Figures on school transfers have been revised and show transfers declining since their peak in 1994-1995.

The 2002 edition of Children’s Report Card will include new data for all 26 indicators, as well as trend analyses. Meanwhile, interim data will continue to be added to the online database. The Report Card was created in 1994 to help the state and counties gauge the well-being of Minnesota’s children and youth. It uses the indicators to assess state and county performance in six major goal areas: academic achievement; caring communities; child poverty; health; stable, supportive home environments; and learning-readiness.

Minnesota Planning is a state agency that develops long-range plans for
the state, stimulates public participation in Minnesota's future and coordinates activities among all levels of government.
