A new study has ranked New Jersey as the fifth best place to raise a child in the U.S.
 
According to the Annie E. Casey Foundation, the state’s quality schools and access to health care is the reason for the high ranking.
The rankings are based on 16 categories examining economic well-being, education, health, and community and family.
The data found New Jersey has one of the highest graduation rates in the U.S.
New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Iowa, and Minnesota rounded out the top five.
Mississippi was ranked the worst.
New Jersey has been ranked in the top 10 since at least 2010.
