Study Ranks New Orleans One of the Worst Cities to Raise a Child

 

479722441NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) - This may be another wake up call for parents in Louisiana. A new report from personal finance site, WalletHub, says New Orleans is one of the worst cities for families.

Out of 150 cities, 1 being the best city for families and 150 being the worst, The Big Easy came in at 118.

But to be fair, most Louisiana cities ranked near the bottom of the list. Shreveport came in at 120 and Baton Rouge came in at 123.

The cities were ranked by “family livability,” meaning the quality of jobs, the cost of housing, quality of schools, and recreation.

Detroit was dead last on the list and Plano, Texas topped the list as the best city for families.
