About Our Organization

North Dakota KIDS COUNT is part of KIDS COUNT, a national and state-by-state effort to track the status of children, sponsored by the Annie E. Casey Foundation. North Dakota KIDS COUNT measures the educational, social, economic, and physical well-being of children in North Dakota in order to inform local and state discussions about how to secure better futures for all of North Dakota’s children.

Founded in 1948, the primary mission of the Annie E. Casey Foundation is to foster public policies, human-service reforms, and community supports that more effectively meet the needs of today’s vulnerable children and families. In pursuit of this goal, the Foundation makes grants that help states, cities, and neighborhoods fashion more innovative, cost-effective responses to these needs. We thank Annie E. Casey for their support but acknowledge that the findings and conclusions represented in our reports are those of North Dakota KIDS COUNT alone, and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of the Foundation.

North Dakota KIDS COUNT is committed to helping inform local and state discussions about how to secure a better future for all of North Dakota’s children. Our data focus on main components of children’s well-being, in order to provide a broad portrait of North Dakota children’s experiences.
