KIDS COUNT PROVIDES LEGISLATORS, PUBLIC OFFICIALS AND CHILD ADVOCATES WITH RELIABLE DATA, POLICY RECOMMENDATIONS AND TOOLS TO ADVANCE POLICIES THAT BENEFIT CHILDREN. AS KANSAS' KIDS COUNT PARTNER, KAC HAS COLLECTED INDICATORS FOR EARLY LEARNING, CHILDREN'S HEALTH, AND FAMILY ECONOMIC SECURITY FOR DECADES. WHEN SHIFTS OCCUR, KAC EXPLORES THE CHANGES. WHEN POSSIBLE, KAC DISAGGREGATES DATA BY RACE AND ETHNICITY AND WORKS ALONGSIDE COMMUNITIES OF COLOR TO CONTEXTUALIZE THE FINDINGS TO BETTER UNDERSTAND ANY DISPARITIES. KAC PARTNERS WITH LOCAL ORGANIZATIONS ACROSS THE STATE TO SHARE COUNTY-BY-COUNTY KIDS COUNT INFORMATION AND COLLABORATES WITH COMMUNITIES AND LOCAL ORGANIZATIONS TO BETTER UNDERSTAND COUNTY-LEVEL DATA. THIS COLLABORATION ENHANCES THE ABILITY TO RECOMMEND POLICY SOLUTIONS THAT ARE INFORMED BY THE LIVED EXPERIENCES OF KANSANS AND THAT WILL IMPROVE CHILD WELL-BEING.
