Compared With Other States, Socioeconomic Conditions of IL Kids In The Middle


Illinois is sitting near the middle of the pack among the 50 states when it comes to the well-being of children.

 

The annual Kids Count report ranks Illinois 23rd among the states on a variety of economic, educational and health factors.

 

That’s actually a drop from the previous year, when the state ranked 21st.

 

Child poverty is a big concern… the number of children in poverty rose three-percent from year to year.

 

But the state does well in access to health care, and has seen improvement in high school graduation percentages.
