Child Poverty Numbers for Ohio Released

Children's Defense Fund - Report Generator

An annual report from the Annie E. Casey Foundation and the Children’s Defense Fund Ohio finds that despite a perceived economic recovery, child poverty remains a serious issue in the state of Ohio.

Dawn Wallace-Pascoe is the Kids Count Project Manager with CDF Ohio.  She gave us an overview of the report and what it means for kids in Ohio.

Below is a snapshot of the child poverty numbers for the WYSO listening area from 2008 through 2012.  You can link to the full report here, and generate your own regional or national reports.
