MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - The KIDS COUNT study released Tuesday by the Annie E. Casey foundation provides a wealth of data on many different areas, including childhood poverty, high school graduation rates, and other factors among children.

In addition to national and state-level comparisons, much of the study includes data drilled down to the county level.

In the slideshow above, you can view maps and charts showing and comparing factors and indicators local to our area, including: Median family income, the number of teens 16 to 19 that are not attending school or work, the total number of founded child abuse and neglect investigations, and child and teenage death rates (per 100,000 people).

The maps compare the data for all counties in South Carolina, while the graphs provide a comparison between the largest counties in our area, compared to the state average. All data and graphics are used with permission by the Annie E. Casey Foundation and the KIDS COUNT Data Center.

But this is just a fraction of the available statistics provided by the most recent KIDS COUNT study. To explore the data on your own, visit the Annie E. Casey Foundation’s Kids Count Data Center here.
