Georgia improves on some economic indicators, loses ground or stalls on education indicators

Georgia again ranks 38th in the nation in child and family well-being, according to the 2021 KIDS COUNT®Data Book, released today by The Annie E. Casey Foundation. The annual report identifies areas where Georgia’s children face struggles and measures where they’re making progress across four domains: economic well-being, education, family and community, and health.

The data in this year’s report are from 2019, so Georgia’s ranking does not reflect the unique challenges families have faced throughout the COVID-19 pandemic to remain healthy, to put food on the table, and for children to succeed in school. While Georgia’s overall rank remains unchanged from last year, some of the data points within each of the domains have changed. Georgia improved on some economic indicators, but lost ground or stalled on education indicators.
