Maryland Ranks As One Of The Top States To Raise a Family

 

Now this is one list we're very happy to see Maryland so close to the top of!

Maryland has been called the 12th BEST state in the country for raising children, based on statistics focused on economic well-being, education, health, and family and community.

This new report concludes that, “A child’s chances of thriving depend not just on individual, familial, and community characteristics, but also on the state in which she or he is born and raised,” due to differences in state laws, environment, culture, and other factors that change region-to-region.
