Report ranks state number one in child well-being


Minnesota ranks number one in the nation in overall child well-being despite having significant racial disparities among children, according to a new report from the Annie E. Casey Foundation.

The “Kids Count Data Book” compares states on how well children are doing on 16 indicators in four categories — economic well-being, education, health, and family and community.

Minnesota ranked fifth on the report last year.
