The overall risk composite score assigns each county to one of the four risk categories, based on their average score across all indicators relative to other counties. This single score is meant to focus attention about where counties fall along the continuum of risk, the availability and accessibility of resources in high-risk counties, and what we can learn from counties that provide the lowest-risk environments for young children.
Minnesota Early Childhood Risk and Reach was developed by the University of Minnesota (Harris Training Programs in the Center for Early Education and Development) and Wilder Research in partnership with the Minnesota Departments of Education, Health, and Human Services.
