OHIO | Ohio ranks among the 20 states with the most underprivileged children


With August being Child Support Awareness Month and children in need experiencing even more risk than usual due to COVID-19, the personal-finance website WalletHub released its report on 2020’s States with the Most Underprivileged Children, as well as accompanying videos.

In order to bring awareness to the condition of underprivileged children throughout the U.S., WalletHub compared the 50 states and the District of Columbia across 27 key measures of neediness. The data set ranges from share of children in households with below-poverty income to child food-insecurity rate to share of maltreated children.

Welfare of Children in Ohio (1=Most; 25=Avg.):

  • 18th – % of Children in Households with Below-Poverty Income
  • 24th – % of Maltreated Children
  • 16th – Child Food-Insecurity Rate
  • 28th – % of Uninsured Children
  • 10th – Infant Mortality Rate
  • 26th – % of Children in Foster Care
  • 13th – % of Children in Single-Parent Families
  • 22nd – WalletHub “States with the Best Health Infrastructure for Coronavirus” Score
