It seems the best states to raise a family include a lot of snow and cold weather

North Dakota, New Hampshire, Vermont, Minnesota and Nebraska lead the list. The District of Columbia, Mississippi, and New Mexico are at the bottom. Tennessee is 37th, right behind Kentucky. From WalletHub.

2017’s Best & Worst States to Raise a Family
Raising a healthy, stable family sometimes requires moving to a new state. And the reasons are often similar: career transitions, better schools, financial challenges or perhaps a general desire to change settings. 
But wants and needs don’t always align in a particular state, which might offer, for instance, a low income-tax rate yet subpar education system. Consequently, a family must make unnecessary sacrifices — the kinds that are easily avoided by knowing which states offer the best combination of qualities that matter most to parents and their kids.
