The 16th annual KIDS COUNT Data Book released July 27 reports that national trends in child well-being are no longer improving in the rapid and sustained way they did in the late 1990s. Among the negative trends: the number of children who live with parents facing persistent unemployment grew to 4 million, an increase of more than 1 million since 2000. This year's essay, "Helping Our Most Vulnerable Families Overcome Barriers to Work and Achieve Financial Success," examines four employment barriers that policymakers and others consider among the most difficult to overcome: substance abuse, domestic violence, a history of incarceration, and depression. These burdens can diminish a person’s motivation and ability to find work. The state-by-state data contained in the 2005 Data Book are now part of an interactive database. Access the Database.
