Annual Kids Count Survey Report Released

According to the Annual Kids Count Survey, child poverty rates rose during 25 years of gathering data, although fewer teens are giving birth or dying.

The report was released Tuesday by the Annie E. Casey Foundation.

In national rankings, Michigan ranks 32 in overall child well-being, down one spot since 2013.

The state’s lowest ranking was in education, where children have struggled in math, reading and graduating on time.
