New York ranks among the top states for working moms, a new report from WalletHub shows.

Best & Worst States for Working Moms has ranked New York fifth among the 50 states and District of Columbia based on nine metrics ranging from the cost and quality of day care to the gender pay gap and parental leave policies.

New York’s day care systems scored the top marks, just ahead of Washington, North Dakota, Oklahoma and Texas. The worst day care systems can be found in Idaho, the report states.

New York ranked last in terms of child care cost as a percentage of median women’s income, while Mississippi ranked first. Nearly 28 percent of a woman’s salary in New York goes toward child care costs.

Oregon ranked first overall on the list of best states for working mothers, while Louisiana ranked last. The District of Columbia, Vermont and Maine also ranked ahead of New York in the rankings.

WalletHub is a social website launched by Evolution Finance that offers financial tools and information for consumers and small business owners. The full report can be found at Best & Worst States for Working Moms.
