Massachusetts edged out Minnesota as the best state to raise a family, according to a study conducted by WalletHub.

The personal finance website looked at five key categories — family fun, health and safety, education and child care, affordability, and socioeconomics — using 42 metrics. Three New England states cracked the top 10:

  1. Massachusetts
  2. Minnesota
  3. New Hampshire
  4. North Dakota
  5. Vermont
  6. Wisconsin
  7. New York
  8. Iowa
  9. Nebraska
  10. California

Connecticut just missed at No. 11, while Maine ranked 17th and Rhode Island came in at 22.

The states named the least family-friendly were (in order): Nevada (41th), Georgia, Arkansas, South Carolina, Oklahoma, Louisiana, West Virginia, Alabama, Mississippi, and New Mexico (50th).
