"Metro areas heavily populated by Latinos in the U.S. seemingly tend to have significant fewer childhood opportunities compared to other parts of the country, a new analysis reveals[...] [C]ities in Texas and California, two of the states with the largest Latino populations, have the lowest scores in relation to childhood opportunity. McAllen, Texas and Brownsville, Texas received a score of 6 and 9 respectively. Visalia, California, received a score of 13. These are the lowest scores in the entire study."
