New Mexico By the Numbers

The 2018 Kids Count Profile from The Annie E. Casey Foundation ranks New Mexico as 50th in the nation for child well-being. This profile considers the following areas and provides New Mexico’s rank in each: Economic Well-being (49th); Education (50th); Health (48th); Family and Community (49th). It does not consider how well a state is responding to child maltreatment but research shows protective factors are related to these well-being indicators.
