Report: Well-Being of W.Va. Children Improves
A private foundation says the well-being of West Virginia's children has improved over the past two decades. But there are still problem areas.
A report released today by the Annie E. Casey Foundation ranks West Virginia 37th in the nation in children's well-being.
The report is based on 16 indicators, including children without health insurance and proficiency in math and reading.
West Virginia is ranked 28th in economic well-being, 33rd in family and community, 35th in health and 46th in education.
The report is part of the foundation's KIDS COUNT project.
