For those of you that are still trying to decide where the best place is to retire, take a look at this article published by Moneyrates.com.
Instead of a subjective approach to their ranking, they took an objective approach with quantifiable factorsâ€”economics (considering cost of living, unemployment, average state and local tax burden), climate, crime rate, and life expectancy.
So, hereâ€™s the top 10:
- New Hampshire
- South Dakota
- North Dakota
Hawaii ranked as #2 in this top 10! Of course, itâ€™s well known that gorgeous weather always yields high ratings, but life expectancy was highest of any state at 80.0 years. This number may be attributed to the many positive health benefits of living in Hawaii compared to other states.
