Kids Count Factbook Shows Ups and Downs for Oklahoma's Children (Jan 25, 2008)
If you consider today an average day in Oklahoma, 140 babies will be born. The parents of six of these new lives will be children themselves. Eleven of these new Oklahomans will be born too small and fragile to ensure adequate health and development, and another 53 will be brought into the world without the benefit of proper pre-natal care.

Numbers like these fill the Kids Count 2007-2008 Factbook. Each year, politicians, policy makers, educators, health care workers, parents and others flip through the statistics and charts, confirming the familiar stories behind the data reflected in this annual compendium of the health and well being of Oklahomaís children.

Anne Roberts is the executive director of the Oklahoma Institute for Child Advocacy, publisher of the Kids Count Factbook. Roberts came into the KGOU studios to discuss this yearís report.
