Wisconsin Ranks 13th on Indicators of Childwellbeing, Yet Disparities on the Rise


The Annie E. Casey Foundation's recently released 2015 Kids Count Data Book marks Wisconsin as 13th best on measures of economic wellbeing, education, health, and family/community. Although this ranking is the same as last year, the data present concerns of increasing child poverty and disparities among children of color. The rate of growth of children in poverty in Wisconsin exceeds the rate of growth nationally, and disparities between black and white children are still the greatest in the nation, according to the Wisconsin Council on Children and Families. Wisconsin-specific data can be found here.
