by Nate Wooley | December 20, 2012 11:59 am

A new list from Bloomberg Businessweek details the best places to raise children in the U.S.

To prepare the list, Bloomberg and Bloomberg Rankings assembled information from more than 3,200 places with populations between 5,000 and 50,000. Cities were evaluated on schools, safety, cost of housing and other measurements. Median income and unemployment were used to analyze the local job markets.

Here’s a list of each state’s top location[1].
