Maine Children's Alliance is the source for data on Maine Kids.
We provide data and information so policy and lawmakers can make informed decisions on policies and practices that affect Maine kids. Our goal is to empower YOU to be the best advocate for Maine kids. Together, we can give them the voice they deserve.
Since 1994, we have been publishing the MAINE KIDS COUNT Data Book biennially. This comprehensive resource includes county-by-county breakdowns and other valuable insights into the current status of Maine kids. The 2015 Maine KIDS COUNT Data Book will be released Fall 2015.
