Best Starts for Kids Indicators
These Best Starts for Kids indicators provide important information about the health and well-being of King County children, youth, families, and communities.
Information is organized into four areas:
- Prenatal to 5 years: Babies are born healthy and are provided with a strong foundation for lifelong health and well-being.
- 5 to 24 years: King County is a place where everyone has equitable opportunities to be safe and healthy as they progress through childhood, building academic and life skills to be thriving members of their communities.
- Youth and family homelessness prevention
- Communities of Opportunity
To ensure that Best Starts for Kids funded activities contribute to desired population-level changes, Best Starts requests for proposals will ask organizations to be responsive to these indicators. Population indicators for the 2022-2027 time period are here. Additional data resources and general population demographic data are available at Communities Count.
