Study: SC Ranks Among the 15 States with the Most Underprivileged Children

Personal finance website WalletHub on Wednesday released its report on 2019’s States with the Most Underprivileged Children and South Carolina was listed as having the 14th most.

The data set ranges from share of children in households with below-poverty income to child food-insecurity rate to share of maltreated children.
