Do You Live in These 10 Worst States in the USA?

Hate where you live? Be thankful you're not living in _____ (fill the blanks with one of these ten worst states in the United States. Or if you actually live in one of those states, then fill it with the one worse than yours. Sorry Mississippians, you're left holding the bag!)

Nick Johnson of RoadSnacks crunched data from the government census, Bureau of Labor Statistics, and Sperling's Best Places, and even the FBI crime stats to measure population density, unemployment rates, median income, housing vacancy rate, education, commute times, crime rates, and bad weather to come up with the 10 Worst States to Live In The USA:

  1. Mississippi
  2. Florida
  3. Alabama
  4. Arizona
  5. Nevada
  6. West Virginia
  7. New Mexico
  8. Tennessee
  9. Georgia
  10. Alaska

The best place to live? Nebraska.

See if you agree with Nick's reasoning over at his article on RoadSnacks (Thanks Nick!)

I happen to PREFER low population density, yet he used it as a big black-mark. Why? Anybody really think people are at their happiest when packed-in like sardines?

And his opinions on weather seem backwards to me. I'd much rather have excessively hot summers than long and freezing winters. That's not just me, the entire US population continues shifting south and westward every year. Arizona is a strange choice, when Phoenix is such a huge and successful metropolis, with many tech companies building facilities there... sort of a low-rent Silicon Valley satellite.
