Wyoming this week received its yearly check-up regarding how the state’s children are doing – and found itself 19th in the nation overall. The KIDS COUNT Data Book released Wednesday shows Wyoming ranks strongest in the economic well-being, and family and community, and weakest in health. Marc Homer with Wyoming KIDS COUNT says the state is trending in the right direction. While Wyoming ranks nearly last in the nation in the health category, Wyoming’s child poverty rate is 14 percent, much lower than the national rate of 22 percent. For comparison, Idaho is ranked 20th overall, and Montana is 28th. Wyoming came in sixth for family and community which measures the number of children being raised in resilient and traditional family units. New Hampshire and Massachusetts were the top ranked states overall in the KIDS COUNT study.
