The Annie E. Casey Foundation’s annual Kids Count Index has once again ranked Vermont among the top 10 states in the nation for overall child well-being. This is the fifth year in a row that Vermont has placed in the top 10 states, this year at #8. The Kids Count Data Book aggregates state results into four overall categories: economic well-being, health, education, and family and community. Within the four categories, Vermont also ranked high in Family & Community (#3) and Education (#5). A summary of Vermont’s ranking shows improvements from year to year in multiple categories.
