Report: Indiana Improved Kids Health Ranking

Jun 17, 2019

The well-being of Hoosier children ranks in the middle of the pack, according to the Kids Count Data Book.

The annual report finds Indiana in the 29th spot overall, a slight decline from last year.  The data measures trends in well-being, including health, economics and family and community. 

An annual conference for Indiana youth workers was held in Indianapolis this week. It’s the largest gathering for these workers in the Midwest with over 1,300 attendees this year.

The Indiana Youth Institute has hosted The Because KIDS COUNT Conference for 16 years. CEO Tami Silverman says it’s a chance for Hoosiers who work with children in many settings including schools, foster care, after school or crisis centers to come together.
