According to an annual study on the well-being if children, the lives of Ohio children have improved over the last ten years, but not as much as children nationwide. The “Kids Count Report” says that, in terms of well being, Ohio children fell from 22nd in the nation in 1990 to 28th in 2000. Ohio did improve in seven of ten categories, including declines in the infant mortality rate, child death rate and rate of deaths of teenagers by accident, homicide or suicide. But there were increases in the percentages of families living with children headed by a single parent and an increase in the number of low birth rates.
