The study looked at several aspects of raising a child including topics of economic well-being, education, health, and family and community.

As reported by CNN, "Top states for overall child well-being were New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Vermont and Minnesota, with Iowa and Connecticut tied for fifth place."

So, which states didn't fare so well? The five worst states for overall child well-being were Arizona, Nevada, Louisiana, New Mexico and, at the bottom of the list for the second year in a row, Mississippi.

Maine came in at 13th.
