The third section provides an overview of Wyoming's rankings compared to the entire nation.

The final section of the report consists of detailed individual county profiles including data on the nine indicators listed above, as well as: (1) county demographics; (2) AFDC recipients; (3) food stamp recipients; (4) Medicaid-eligible; and (5) high school dropout rate.
