The best place to be a child

The Annie E. Casey Foundation KIDS COUNT data book ranks each state according to the well-being of its children. The best place to be a child, meaning where children are the safest and get the best health care and best education, etc. is New Hampshire.

Half of the top ten best states in which to be a child are Northeastern states, typically the least religious and the least restrictive of abortion.

Nine of the ten worse states in which to be a child are Bible Belt states in which religious observance is highest and so are restrictions on abortion. Could there might be a correlation here?

The KIDS COUNT data book considers such key indicators as: infant mortality, child & teen deaths, teens not in school or working, and child poverty.
