We’re Live! Updates to the Kids Count Dashboard

Posted on March 16, 2021


For more than 20 years, ACNJ has produced KIDS COUNT data reports to bring you the most current data relating to the well-being of children. In an effort to continue to highlight important trends impacting our state's children, ACNJ created the NJ KIDS COUNT Data Dashboard, which will now be updated on a quarterly basis. We encourage you to use these data to inform your programs, write grant reports, and educate members of your community.

Data updates for this quarter include:

  • NJ Earned Income Tax Credits, Recipients with at Least 1 Dependent Under Age 19 (# of credits issued and average claim amount)
  • Federal Earned Income Tax Credits, (# of credits issued and average claim amount)
  • Unemployment Rates
  • Infant Mortality Rates
  • Teens Ages 16 to 19 Not Working and Not in School
  • Youth Admissions to County Detention
  • Youth Commitments
