IYI statistics from the Indiana Department of Health for health and well-being include live births, including total births, and percent of low birthweight births. Background on the status of mothers from IYI that has implications for the health and well-being of babies includes the percent of mothers who reported smoking during pregnancy; the percent of mothers who received 1st trimester prenatal care; percent of non-married Moms as percent of all births; the number of Moms who were single, under 20 and without a high school diploma; and the birth rate for teens ages 15-17. Three types of death rate data are also given: the total number of infant deaths; child deaths; and teen deaths from accident, homicide, or suicide. In addition, there is data on the number of children enrolled in Hoosier Healthwise and the number of Noncompliance with Youth Tobacco Access Laws (N/A for 2002).
IYI statistics for each county on education, grades K-12, include much of the same information available on the Department of Education (DOE) web site and some county level data on education not found on the DOE web site. The IYI site includes enrollment data information for public schools, K-12; non-Public Schools; home schools; and alternative schools. Also provided are the numbers of public school dropouts and expulsions and suspensions. Related to graduation are both the number and percent of high school graduates. The Department of Education calculates this percentage graduation rate based on the percent of those who enter twelfth grade and graduate the same year. IYI provides this statistic and also an alternative method for calculating graduation rate, which is the percent of the Freshman class that graduates in 4 years. Other statistics gathered from graduating students include the percent who intend to study at a 4-year college and the percent intending to study at a Vocational/Technical School. One additional significant piece of data is the total per pupil expenditure.
