ISSUE: Well-being of children
OUR VIEW: Everyone has a hand in improvement
When it comes to child well-being, 18 Kentucky counties are doing better than Hardin County, according to Kentucky Youth Advocates, a nonpartisan and nonprofit group.
The organization released the Kentucky Kids County’s 2013 County Data Book, which considers 16 indicators of child well-being for Kentucky’s 120 counties. The indicators fall in four categories: economic security, education, health and family and community.
