Oregon is the third best state in the US in which to have children, according to a study by WalletHub. The study analyzed the best and worst states in which to have a child by looking at the cost of giving birth to and raising a child, healthcare conditions, and baby friendliness of the state, among other factors.

Oregon was beaten only by Vermont, which took the top spot, and Maine, which came in second.

WalletHub measured the states across 22 metrics, including access to pediatric services, the number of child-care centers per capita, air pollution, and average infant-care costs. A complete list of the metrics can be found online. Out of the 50 states and Washington, D.C., Oregon ranked No. 26 for the cost of having a child, No. 4 for healthcare conditions, and No. 8 for baby friendly environment. 

Not only is Oregon a good state in which to have a baby, but as GoLocal reports, also is the 15th best state for raising black children. 

In the U.S. Oregon may be a good place to be for parents and expectant parents. However, the cost of having a child in the U.S. is higher than anywhere else in the world, according to the International Federation of Health Plans.
