The Annie E. Casey Foundation’s annual KIDS COUNT Data Book has been released. The Data Book is a reliable source of data that provides insight to the well-being of Wyoming kids and families. Sheridan Media’s Ron Richter has the details.
The 2020 KIDS COUNT Data Book ranked Wyoming 16th in the nation overall. Like previous years’ reports, the data evaluates 16 key indicators in the domains of economic well-being; education; family and community; and health. Wyoming ranked in the top 20 on three of the four indicators. Wyoming Community Foundation Director of Programs and Communication Micah Richardson.
Across the four specific domains, Wyoming ranked 10th in economic well-being; 20th in education; seventh in family and community and 34th in health. One area that remains a concern for Wyoming is the number of children without health insurance. We’ll take a closer look at that area in a future story.
