There’s a very interesting package of articles and interactive charts this week in The Upshot section of The New York Times that underscore the role location plays in a child’s success later in life. The package includes a map called “The Best and Worst Places to Grow Up: How Your Area Compares.” You can see how the county in which you live can affect a child’s expected earning power when they grow up.

Here at the American Institute for Economic Research, we think location matters, too. Next week, we will release another location-centric study: Our Employment Destinations Index will rank metro areas around the United States in eight different economic and quality-of-life categories that are important to college graduates ages 22-35 as they decide where they would like to live… and, perhaps, end up raising children someday. We will have some interesting charts of our own. Stay tuned.
