2024 KIDS COUNT Factbook

The Children’s Foundation of Mississippi (CFM) is pleased to present the 2024 Mississippi KIDS COUNT Factbook. The CFM believes that for Mississippi to reach its potential, Mississippi’s children and youth must reach their potential.

Nationally and at the individual state level, KIDS COUNT has continued to be recognized as a premier data source on children, youth, and families for over three decades. We are delighted to be a recognized source of information for Mississippi. KIDS COUNT can be used to gauge important changes in metrics for children, families, and communities.

This year, we dedicated the 2024 Mississippi KIDS COUNT Factbook to the late Judge Tom Broome, honoring his work and legacy as a changemaker for outcomes for children in our state.
