Georgia could do more to reduce its ranks of underprivileged children, that’s according to the personal finance website WalletHub. The organization studied all 50 states and the District of Columbia in areas including the infant mortality rate, the number of uninsured children and the child food-insecurity rate.
“This is one of those rankings where you don’t want to be the top,” according to Analyst Jill Gonzalez. “Number one would have the most underprivileged children, 51 would have the least. Georgia is 13th, so it’s not in the worst 10 here, but certainly close to it.”
