Report: Quarter of Arizona Children Live in Poverty

How the latest Kids Count Data Book ranks Arizona.

Among all 50 states, Arizona ranked 45th for child well-being on the latest Kids Count report, released this week by the Annie E. Casey Foundation. The annual report collects federal, state and local data related to education, health, poverty and family and community factors. Michelle Crow of the Children's Action Alliance, a non-partisan group that advocates for children in Arizona, discussed the report's findings that nearly a quarter of the state's kids live in poverty.
