  Child poverty is a major concern in Colorado, officials are contending with the issue by addressing teen pregnancies, food stamp use, and much more. In a report published last month government leaders can see the wide variety of concerns and take measures to alleviate the problem.

A report from Colorado Public Radio illustrates the Annual Kids Count report from the Colorado Children's Campaign and sifts through data from the U.S. Census Bureau, the state government, and other sources to determine a course of action. See this report and more on our website hppr.org
