Report: Michigan lags in measures of child well-being

LANSING, Mich. (AP) - A report says Michigan lags many other states in  measures of child well-being.

The assessment comes in the 2012 Kids Count rankings released Wednesday by  the Annie E. Casey Foundation.

The report says Michigan ranks 32nd among the 50 states in child well-being.  It's ranked among the 10 worst when it comes to the percent of children living  in high-poverty areas and for children living in families where no parent has a  full-time, year-round job.

Jane Zehnder-Merrell is Kids Count in Michigan project director at the  Michigan League for Human Services. She says the report reflects "troubling  trends."
