According to the Race for Results report released earlier this week, the greatest gap between black and white children was found in Wisconsin.
The report analyzed data from 44 states, examining 12 indexes to determine the overall well-being of children across the U.S.
Based on a composite score of 1,000 the well-being of African American children in Wisconsin was found to be less than 300, while Caucasian children in the state were ranked at more than 760. This was the largest gap found between black and white children in any state.
Factors that were considered for the study included graduation rates, being enrolled in pre-K programs, and living in a household with two parents, among other things.
Furthermore the analysis found that only 24 percent of African American children in the state “live in an economically stable condition.” Read more about the study and findings here.
