Press Release

Washington, D.C. — Iowa is the best state to raise a child, according to the most recently published data analyzed by the Children’s Rights Council, a national child advocacy organization.

Iowa has moved from its rank as 5th in the 1997 report due to reductions in the following: number of children in poverty, single parents, and teen pregnancies.  In 1998, Iowa replaces North Dakota, CRC’s 1997 number one state, which now ranks 6th.

CRC’s 1998 4th annual report on how the fifty states and D.C. rank in the raising of children will be released at a press conference Tuesday, July 28th, in the Russell Senate Office Building, room 385, at 11:00 am.  Honored speakers will include Congressman Ganske (IA), Congressman Oberstar (MN), Congressman Sabo (MN), and Congressman Gutknecht (MN).

The 50 states and District of Columbia were categorically measured and then ranked in relation to one another based on 11 different criteria.  These criteria are the highest public school graduation rate, and the lowest of the following: infant mortality rate, child death rate, children in poverty, teenage pregnancy rate, unwed births, divorce rate, single parent households, crime rate, drug induced deaths, and alcohol induced deaths.  "We feel these are the best indicators of how well a state provides a child-friendly environment," said David L. Levy, President of CRC.

"The Best States to Raise a Child" are

  1. Iowa
  2. Minnesota
  3. New Hampshire
  4. Nebraska
  5. Massachusetts
  6. North Dakota
  7. South Dakota
  8. Maine
  9. Utah
  10. Vermont
A complete ranking of all of the states can be obtained through the Children’s Rights Council.
