Best Starts for Kids Indicators
These Best Starts for Kids (BSK) indicators provide important information about the health and well-being of King County children, youth, families, and communities.
Information is organized into three 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
To ensure that BSK-funded activities contribute to desired population-level changes, BSK requests for proposals will ask organizations to be responsive to these indicators. Additional data resources and general population demographic data are available at Communities Count.
Note: We are still collecting and analyzing data for some of the indicators below. We will post the data as soon as they are available. Performance measures for programs funded by BSK will also be available here, starting in late 2017.
