"Kids Count" Shows Best and Worst in Four Corners
(2007-07-25)
(ksut) - HOST LEAD: When it comes to the well-being of children, you'll find the best and the worst among the Four Corners states.
KSUT's Victor Locke reports:

VICTOR: New Mexico ranks 47th out of the 50 states in the latest Kids Count report, just released by the Annie E. Casey foundation, up one spot from a year earlier.
The report says 26-percent of New Mexico's children live in poverty, compared to 28-per cent a year earlier.
Colorado's overall ranking is 23rd, up from 25 with 14-percent estimated living in poverty.
Arizona's overall rank of 36 is up one while the 20-percent level of poverty among youth is unchanged.
Utah fared best, ranking 4th in the nation for the well being of children, up from 6th a year earlier.
The foundation has conducted the survey for 18 years as a way to assist policymakers in addressing the needs of youth.
From KSUT, I'm Victor Locke.
