(KSL News) Utah ranks fourth best in the nation when it comes to caring for kids. That's according to the annual Kids Count survey for child welfare.

The survey shows Utah has the lowest number of children in single-parent homes.

Utah also has the lowest number of children living in homes where neither parent has full-time, year-round employment.

But there are still things to work on: 11 percent of Utah children are without health insurance, and the child death rate went up 5 percent between 2000 and 2004.
