Data brings into focus for us an accurate picture of our state by pointing out our strengths, our weaknesses, and trends we may not have noticed before. GaFCP provides local leaders, state agencies and policymakers with current, reliable data they need to inform decisions about improving outcomes for the children, families, and communities they serve. We synthesize and interpret data into customized information and tools specific to our Collaboratives’ and partners’ needs.
We track indicators of child and family well-being because they help us understand how communities are doing, where we’re strong, and where we need to work to improve, so that all children, families, and communities in Georgia are healthy and thriving.
These resources include annual editions of the KIDS COUNT Data Book along with materials covering topics about giving kids a foundation for lifetime success, early reading proficiency, restoring teen and young adult connections to opportunity, and much more.
