Programs and Initiatives

CSR's program areas focus on social indicator projects that measure progress in North Dakota. These projects provide everyone in the state - policymakers, business and community leaders, and concerned individuals who live and work here - a common foundation to identify, understand, and act on issues affecting our communities.

North Dakota KIDS COUNT.  North Dakota KIDS COUNT is part of a national and state-by-state effort to track the status of children, sponsored by the Annie E.
