Some important social factors that contribute to the success and well being of children in the United States—such as family income—have stopped improving, concludes a report by the Annie E. Casey Foundation.

Learn more about the “2005 KIDS COUNT Data Book” from the Annie E. Casey Foundation.

The report by the Baltimore-based foundation found that 4 million children in the United States now live with parents who do not retain stable full-time employment, an increase of 3 percent since 2000. In addition, nearly half a million more children live in poverty than did in 2000.

However, the report cites improvements in some areas. For instance, high school dropout rates for U.S. teenagers ages 16 to 19 declined from 11 percent in 2000 to 8 percent in 2003, according to the report.
