Idaho in the middle for overall child well-being

Idaho is standing mid-range in most “kid” categories, according to the Annie E. Casey Foundation 2018 Kids County Date Book: State Trends in Child Well Being, which was recently released. Since 1990, Kids Count has ranked states annually on overall child well-being using an index of key indicators in four areas: economic well-being, education, health, and family and community. For overall child well-being, Idaho came in at 21. The top five states were New Hampshire, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Minnesota and Iowa, while the bottom five were Alaska, Nevada, Mississippi, Louisiana and New Mexico. Neighboring states include Utah (6); Washington (15); Montana (23); Oregon (30); and Nevada (47).
