In each key dimension, Georgia ranked No. 31 in child care, No. 30 in professional opportunities and, for the fifth year in a row, last place for work-life balance.
Among the relevent metrics, we finished:
- 21st – day care quality
- 33rd – pediatricians per capita
- 41st – gender pay gap (women’s earnings as percentage of men’s)
- 45th – ratio of female to male executives
- 19th – female unemployment rate
- 34th – parental leave policy score
- 45th – average length of woman’s work week (in hours)
- 34th – percentage of single-mother families in poverty
But chin up, moms, because things could be worse. Louisiana, for example, which came in last place with a score of just 27.38, ranked No. 50 in both child care and professional opportunity. And Mississippi, which was No. 50 overall with a score of just 29.14, ranked last for opportunity and No. 49 for work-life balance.
