We’re Live! Updates to the Kids Count Dashboard


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
