New Mexico was again ranked 50th out of the 50 states for child well-being by the 2019 edition of the Annie E. Casey Foundation’s KIDS COUNT Data Book. This is the third time in the last decade the state has placed last in the nation: New Mexico fell to 50th in 2013 and in 2018.
James Jimenez, executive director of New Mexico Voices for Children, said the results were not surprising. The group is a nonpartisan, statewide advocacy organization, which works to improve the lives of New Mexico’s children.
