New York Ranked 17th Best State To Live
US News and World Report has ranked the best states to live in, and New York came out okay!
#17 overall in the United States? Not too shabby right? US News and World Report has ranked the states 1 through 50, and New York came out a little above average. The rankings were based on the following categories, with New York’s ranking for each:
- Heatlcare: 13
- Education: 19
- Crime & Corrections: 5
- Infrastructure: 22
- Opportunity: 44
- Economy: 29
- Government: 23
As you would guess, we rank very well in healthcare and crime, but I thought our education ranking would be higher. Our schools and universities have a great reputation!
So which states performed the best? Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Minnesota, North Dakota and Washington finished 1 through 5 respectively. You can see the full rankings here.
And hey, it’s good to know new York is better than 33 other states!
