In the latest Kids Count Data Book, Alabama fell to 46th in the nation, dropping for the second straight year. The state lost ground in all four child well-being indicators, economic well-being, education, health and family and community. Policy and Research Director for Voices for Alabama's children, Rhonda Mann says poverty in the state puts children at a disadvantage. The news wasn't all bad. Alabama did see a decline in the number of low birth weight babies; the proportion of children without health insurance; child and teen deaths; and alcohol and drug abuse by teens.
