Texas on the Edge

Speaking of lists, the Texas on the Brink report came out on the 13th of this month.  The report lists how Texas ranks among all 50 states on a number of socio-economic topics.  For example:

Percent of population 25 and older with a high school diploma. = 50th
Birth rate. = 2nd
Teenage birth rate. = 7th (I am amazed that anyone was born as a teenager, but numbers do not lie.)
Percent of uninsured children. = 1st
Percent of children living in poverty. = 4th
Percent of population uninsured. = 1st
Per capita spending on mental health. = 50th
