Danville named 10th worst city to raise a child in America (WCCU)

A new report shows Danville as the tenth worst city to raise a child in America.

The recent list by 24/7 Wall Street of the 25 worst U.S. cities to raise a child used an index of violent crimes, quality of school districts and access to parks and rec centers to format the list.

Danville had 780 incidents of violent crime for every 100,000 residents, more than double the national rate, and 6.7-percent of the labor force is unemployed.
