A national report has ranked Colorado as the 45th state in child health, but the state’s overall average ranking sneaks into the top 50 percent.

The report is part of the annual Kids Count Data Book published by the Annie E. Casey Foundation. It gave Colorado the 22nd overall ranking for 2012.

The report assigned these rankings to Colorado by topic:
-Economic Well-being: 16
-Education: 9
-Health: 45
-Family and Community: 25

The complete report with rankings of all states is available on the foundation’s website.
