Cumulative social, economic and health risk factors

In 2015, 15 Minnesota counties were characterized as having high cumulative risk of negative outcomes for young children.

The 15 economic, health, and family stability risk factors used to identify these counties are:

Economic— births to mother with less than a high school degree; children under age 18 without a working parent; children under age 6 living in poverty.

Health— teen birth rate; inadequate prenatal care; low-weight births; infant mortality rate; children under age 6 without health care coverage; and lack of immunizations

Family stability— child mobility; maltreatment reports filed; and children under age 6 in foster care.

This document (.xlsx) provides the indicator data in table format.
