Regional Data

In 2012, COAD and the Ohio University Voinovich Center partnered to develop a profile of the children in the Appalachian region of Ohio. The report tells how many children live in the region, their economic status, their family status, the number of children who attend early childhood programs, etc. We hope that this information can be useful to anyone who is interested in working for the children of our region, whether that is through advocacy, public education or making informed choices when deciding policy matters.

Appalachian Children’s Report

Ohio’s Appalachian Children at a Crossroads: A Roadmap for Action is an in-depth examination of the well-being of the children of the region. The report was released by the Children’s Defense Fund-Ohio with the collaboration of COAD, Battelle for Kids and Foundation for Appalachian Ohio.
