Most Livable States
For fourteen years, Morgan Quitno Press has issued its Livable State Award. Based on 44 factors selected from updated editions of its annual reference book, State Rankings, the Most Livable State Award recognizes a state for its high quality of life. New Hampshire's achievement breaks Minnesotas seven-year-long streak of winning this annual honor. There was no surprise at the opposite end of the rankings scale: Mississippi, ranks #50 for the sixth consecutive year.Rounding out the top five spots with New Hampshire are (in descending order) Minnesota, Vermont, Iowa and New Jersey. Bringing up the opposite end of the rankings scale with Mississippi are Louisiana in 49th, South Carolina in 48th, Alabama in 47th and Tennessee in 46th place.
