CIty/Town Tuesdays is an initiative by Rhode Island KIDS COUNT, the child policy and advocacy organization based in Providence that monitors the well-being of children across Rhode Island.

City/Town Tuesdays sees the organization share data and information about the well-being of children in one city or town in Rhode Island each week. A statistical profile of the featured city/town is provided across five subject areas: Family and Community, Economic Well-Being, Health, Safety, and Education. Community-level data is shared, along with state-level data.

City/Town Tuesdays connects Rhode Island KIDS COUNT with individuals on the local level, and to share data with the community for informed decision making.
