San Francisco Chronicle

When it comes to health, academics and overall well-being, the 125,000 children living in San Francisco are typically better off than their peers in California’s 57 other counties, according to a statewide survey released Tuesday. The report, by Oakland’s Children Now, measured the status of children across 28 quality-of-life indicators ranging from whether newborns were exclusively breastfed in the hospital to the percent of classrooms with high-speed Internet access.
