Arizona’s Rankings Fall Short for Kids’ Health & Education: How We Can Improve

Our state scored poorly in a new study that measured kids’ health, education, economics and family life. Explore the causes of these low numbers, as well as how we can improve Arizona’s ranking in the years to come.

  • A new national study by Kids Count, an organization that collects comprehensive data on the well-being of children, placed Arizona at 42nd overall and in the bottom half for all four categories measured.
  • For kids’ health, Arizona rose five spots since 2020, improving from 33rd to 28th within a year.
  • The other three categories showed declines which were largely related to insufficient school funding, poverty and family life — but Valleywise Health is striving to improve these statistics.
