WV KIDS COUNT is determined to make West Virginia a great place to be a kid.

WV KIDS COUNT believes every child in West Virginia counts, so we help policymakers make the best decisions possible by producing our signature Data Book that annually tracks the well-being of children over time and across West Virginia to provide high quality, unbiased information and encourage action on behalf of kids and families.

WV KIDS COUNT supports the well-being of all children in West Virginia by building partnerships with child-serving organizations to stand up for what kids need.
