More Montana kids are insured, fewer are dying and the teen birth rate continues to drop. This is according to the 2016 National Kids Count Data Book released this week.

New data says Montana does a good job at placing placing kids in its child welfare system with relatives or foster families, which is seen as preferable to placements in group homes.
