Number of Minnesota children living in poverty increases
Three area counties rank among the highest in the state for numbers of children in poverty, according to Kids Count — a report by a charitable foundation using the latest Census data.
Aitkin, Wadena and Cass counties were among eight counties with the highest percentage of children in poverty ranging from 21.1 percent to 35 percent.
The Kids Count Data Snapshot, using 2010 Census data, was recently released by the Annie E. Casey Foundation.
