100 Communities in America Where Children are Most Likely to Grow Up Rich

According to dailymail.com,

  • some of the American communities that provide children with the most promising futures are just a few miles away from those where kids are most likely to grow up to be poor or incarcerated
  • The pattern repeats itself around the country, with inherited poverty significantly higher in certain communities – and sometimes the defining difference in a child's future comes down to less than a mile
  • The American South has the greatest concentration in the nation of children who grow up without ever escaping poverty, while the Northeast leads in wealth-based outcomes for kids in those communities
  • Factors that contribute to disparities include: uneven access to education, transportation and affordable housing, as well as a lack of good-paying jobs that offer health care
