Wyoming continues to rank low in child health

CHEYENNE — Wyoming is once again at the bottom of the pack for children’s health in a Kids Count report released last week by the Annie E. Casey Foundation.

Among the findings of the report, Wyoming still lags behind the national average for the number of children with health care coverage and suffers from a relatively large wage disparity between men and women.

However, the state climbed in the overall ranking of “child well-being,” rising to 18 from 27 last year.
