A suburb is the best place in the nation to rear children, according to Business Week Magazine. The magazine's second annual roundup is based on factors including school test scores, affordability and crime rates. The winner is Mount Prospect.

Business Week gave Mount Prospect points for being a magnet for immigrants.

It also called it a middle-class community with low crime, affordable homes, award-winning schools, ethnic restaurants, a major regional mall and its small town charm.
