America’s Best States to Live In
4 Jan 2019
Each U.S. state has its advantages and shortcomings. Often, Americans live in the state they grew up in because it is familiar and feels like home. Other personal factors are often behind why people live in a certain state. However, there are several more objective factors that drive people to — or away from — a certain state, and can be used to help assess just how livable a state is.
These factors include an area’s economy, job market, crime rate, health care, and more. Sometimes the best way of measuring these factors is to look at an outcome that best reflects the combined effects of living in a state.
