MarinKids 2014 Data & Action Guide – PDF

MarinKids 2014 Data & Action Guide provides a look at how all Marin’s children and youth are faring on key indicators of academic performance, access to healthcare and childhood obesity. Benchmarks are tracked over time and include a deeper look at racial/ethnic and economic differences among children on these indicators. The Guide is a tool for advocates and policymakers and offers recommendations and models for action to promote policies and strategies that can improve outcomes for all kids. The Guide’s findings show that even as Marin County ranks high among other counties in California on measures of child well being, up to 60% fewer children who are poor or racially diverse meet state targets in math and English. Fewer graduate from high school on time, attend preschool, or are at a healthy weight.
