(Fargo, ND) -- Minnesota is one of the best states when it comes to Children's Healthcare in the country.

Personal Finance website WalletHub ranks The Gopher State 10th best in their latest survey, which took into account 33 key metrics including everything from share of children up to 17 that are in good health to pediatricians and family doctors per capita.

North Dakota ranks 24th best on the list.

The study comes as workers pay an average of over $6,100 per year toward employer-sponsored family coverage, and with Every Kid Healthy Week kicking off on April 24th.

The best state for Children's Healthcare, according to WalletHub, is Massachusetts. The worst? Mississippi.
