A Roadmap to Improve Child Well-Being in Louisiana

THE ANNIE E. CASEY FOUNDATION uses data from 16 different indicators of child well-being to create an overall ranking for all 50 states in its annual KIDS COUNT Data Book. The 16 indicators are organized into four domains: economic well-being, education, health, and family and community. The Foundation converts the data for each indicator to a standard score, and the standard scores are then added together to create a standard score for each domain. These domain-level standard scores are then added together to produce each state’s unique score. These scores are then ranked, with 1 being the best and 50 being the worst.
