The report compiled an array of 13 measures relating to access to medical care, quality and cost for children in each state. Overall, Iowa ranked first and Oklahoma ranked last. The report also found that top-performing states tend to have lower rates of uninsured children than those ranked at the bottom, but also have higher health costs.
