Louisiana Ranked Last "50" in The U.S.
"1" is Most Livable, "50" is Not
2006 MOST LIVABLE STATE AWARD
METHODOLOGY: To determine a state's "Livability Rating," each state's rankings for 44 factors were averaged. The scale is 1 to 50, the higher the number, the better. Data used are for the most recent year in which comparable numbers are available from most states. All factors were given equal weight. States with no data available for a given category were ranked based only on the remaining factors.
