The Best States ranking of U.S. states uses thousands of data points to measure how well states are performing for their citizens. In addition to health care and education, the metrics also take into consideration a state’s economy, its roads, bridges, internet and other infrastructure, its public safety, the fiscal stability of state government, and the opportunity it affords its residents.
So where did we rank on this lovely list? Michigan ranked at #33 (which is up from 37 last year) with our best score being the opportunity and affordability.
Washington ranked #1.
