Here are the top 10 worst states in which to raise Black children.

Wisconsin is the 23rd largest state by total area and the 20th most populous. The state capital is Madison, and its largest city is Milwaukee, which is located on the western shore of Lake Michigan. The state’s oldest city is Green Bay, and its oldest incorporated village is Sauk City. The state is divided into 72 counties.
