The 2010 Kids Count Data Book was released Tuesday by the Annie E. Casey Foundation, an organization that tracks state data on child welfare. The report found that child poverty grew 50 percent in Colorado from 2000 to 2008, compared to a national rate of 6 percent for the same period.
A more detailed report, released in April, showed that child poverty in Colorado from 2000-2008 grew fastest along the Front Range. While child poverty in El Paso and Denver Counties increased 63 percent during the eight-year period, Arapahoe County saw a 100 percent increase. Adams County child-poverty increased 96 percent.
