2022 Kids Count Data Book

The 2022 Kids Count Data Book is an annual publication by the Annie E. Casey Foundation that presents national and state data on our children’s overall well-being across four domains – Economic Well-Being, Education, Health, and Family and Community.

This year’s report features pre- and first year- pandemic statistics and highlights the concerning spike in anxiety and depression among our youth. For example, the percentage of children that struggle to make it through the day rose from 9.4% in 2016 to 11.8% in 2020, an almost 26% increase. The report also highlights the racial and ethnic disparities in America – while 17% of children overall live in poverty, this percentage rises to 32% for Black children and 31% for American Indian children.

This report also features each state’s own data profile. In 2022, Hawai’i state ranked number 22 out of 50 (within the 2nd quartile) in Overall Child Well-Being. Across the four domains, Hawai’i state ranked:

  • 34th in Economic Well-Being: The percentage of children living in poverty decreased from 15% in 2008-2012 to 12% in 2016-2020.
  • 35th in Education: The percentage of young children (ages 3-4) not in school increased from 45% in 2008-2012 to 53% in 2016-2020.
  • 5th in Health: Child and teen deaths per 100,000 decreased from 21 in 2010 to 16 in 2020.
  • 15th in Family and Community: The number of teen births per 1,000 decreased from 33 in 2010 to 13 in 2020.
