ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A report by the Annie E. Casey Foundation says New Mexico's ranking in the health and well-being of children has declined.
The state was 46th in the nation in this year's Kids Count report. That's down from 43rd in 2009.
The report released on Tuesday bases its rankings on 10 indicators of well-being for children. New Mexico is near the bottom nationally in several of those categories.
