KIDS COUNT is a state and national effort funded by the Annie E. Casey Foundation to track the status of children. Hawai‘i Children’s Action Network serves as the state's designated KIDS COUNT grantee, working in partnership with Hawai‘i Appleseed Center for Law and Economic Justice, Hawai‘i Budget and Policy Center, and the Center on the Family.


Hawai‘i KIDS COUNT features a variety of useful resources:



Household Pulse Survey Dashboard

This interactive dashboard, created by Hawai‘i Children’s Action Network and the Center on the Family, uses the latest data from the U.S. Census Household Pulse Survey to explore the impact of the pandemic on Hawai‘i’s households with children.

National KIDS COUNT Data Center

This data center includes access to hundreds of indicators of child well-being, including economic status, health, safety, and risk factors. Data are available by state and across states, with smaller geographic breakdowns presented where available. The data center also highlights the status of Hawai‘i's children and youth, with some of the state data provided by the Center on the Family.

Hawaiʻi KIDS COUNT Data Dashboard

This interactive dashboard provides statewide and county-level data on 19 metrics of child well-being and allows users to track changes over time. The Hawaiʻi KIDS COUNT Data Dashboard – a collaboration between Hawai‘i Children’s Action Network and the Center on the Family – represents a subset of child well-being indicators that the partnership shares on the national KIDS COUNT Data Center.

Additional resources and information can be found on the Hawai‘i Children’s Action Network website.
