The Rhode Island KIDS COUNT Data in Your Backyard series is presenting community-level child well-being data from the Rhode Island Kids Count Factbook in communities across the state.

Earlier today, RI Kids Count presented Newport-specific data on child and family well-being at the BankNewport Administration & Operations Center in Middletown.

While What’sUpNewp couldn’t be at the presentation today, we were provided with the presentation and the data that was shared during the event. What’sUpNewp is working on a story that will dive deeper into the data.
