The Annie E. Casey Foundation's 2006 KidsCount Data Book is now online. The Data Book reports that national trends in child well-being are no longer improving in the steady way they did in the late 1990s. Three out of 10 child well-being indicators have worsened since 2000. More than 13 million children were living in poverty in 2004--an increase of 1 million over four years.
