If you’re expecting, or hope to be expecting soon, the folks at Wallethub have put together a list of the best states to reside in. Consider these the most baby-happy states, in a sense.
The study looked at the 50 states and the District of Columbia using 31 key measures, including cost and health care accessibility, plus baby- and family-friendliness.
“Our data set ranges from hospital conventional-delivery charges to annual average infant-care costs to pediatricians per capita,” Wallethub says.
The study concluded that the No. 1 state in the U.S. to have a baby is Massachusetts. The worst is Mississippi.
So, where is Michigan? We’re smack dab in the middle at No. 25.
