Compared to the wellbeing of children in California's other 57 counties, San Luis Obispo County kids are smarter in math and English and have more health insurance.

According to a recent report by Children Now, entitled the "2007 California County Data Book," SLO County ranks:

4th in the percentage of elementary school students meeting state targets in math.

6th in the percentage of elementary school students meeting state targets in English Language Arts.

7th in the percentage of children with health insurance.

But if one decides to raise a family on the Central Coast, be warned SLO County also ranks:

29th in the percentage of high school students eligible to attend one of California's public universities.
