According to the survey carried out by Men's Health Magazine, Madison beat more than a 100 major cities in the country to take the top spot with the lowest number of accidental death rates among children aged between 5 to 14 years, sex offenders per capita, and the rate of abused children shielded from further abuse. In fact Madison was the only city in the country to receive an A+ grade in the survey.

In comparison, bigger cities like New Orleans and Baltimore received a lower rating with Jacksonville in Florida coming at the bottom of the list.

Expressing his delight at the survey, Madison mayor Dave Cieslewicz said, "I think we deserved it. Obviously I think it reflects our concern about children and some of the efforts we made as a community to keep kids safe. We have a very strong social service system. We fund domestic abuse programs, and we're working a safe route to school program to make it safer for kids to bike and walk."
