Study's Low Marks On Youth Well-Being Stir States

Study's Low Marks On Youth Well-Being Stir States

A new report on child well-being, by state and race, has turned an unflattering spotlight on some places not used to being at the bottom of such lists. Wisconsin had a worst-in-the-nation ranking for its black children; South Dakota had abysmal results for its American Indian youth.

The report, released Tuesday by the Annie E. Casey Foundation, detailed nationwide racial disparities that put Asian and white children in a far better position than black, Latino and American Indian children. For some advocates for children, the state-specific results were stinging.

The scores came in an index based on 12 indicators measuring a child's success from birth to adulthood. The indicators include reading and math proficiency, teen birthrates, employment prospects, family income and education levels, and neighborhood poverty levels.
