Montana ranks low among U.S. states in children’s health, but is about average in overall child well-being, says a new report.

Though Montana ranks 22nd in the country for overall child well-being, it places 44th for children’s health. That is according to the new KIDS COUNT Data Book the Annie E. Casey Foundation released Monday. It offers data on health, education and other indicators of the state of the nation’s children.
