South Dakota ranks 20th as healthy place to live

South Dakota ranks 20th among the states as a healthy place to live, according to an annual ranking by the United Health Foundation.

Minnesota is first on the list and North Dakota is sixth.

One of the most disturbing statistics in the report is that children living in poverty in South Dakota increased by 33 percent during the past year. Twelve percent of South Dakotans do not have health insurance.
