It appears that our buddies over at Wallethub have actually brought out the list of the very best states to reside in, in 2022. I’m going to be straight-up with you, I enjoy it when among these lists comes out– for a number of factors.
First, I constantly question how they develop their findings and simply how precise they are. Second, it likewise makes me laugh a bit to see the online haters get all bent out of shape and respond to those findings.
Montana continues to end up being a popular location for transplants, and locations like Bozeman, Missoula, and the Flathead area are magnets for folks seeking to “get away” their common lives and come have the Montana experience.
Here’s the issue with that: most Montanans would inform you those locations aren’t the Montana experience, however I digress. So, where did Montana wind up on the list? What elements enter into choosing where we wind up on the list? According to Wallethub, here are the elements utilized to identify a state’s ranking:
- Education and Health
- Quality of Life
So, how did we do? The excellent or problem, depending upon how you take a look at it, is that we made the Top 20 as far as theBest States In truth, we was available in at number 19. Which was much better than our next-door neighbors Washington, Oregon, andSouth Dakota However, North Dakota, Idaho, and Wyoming beat us, with the latter 2 making the Top 10.
Apparently, we might do a bit much better when it concerns cost (27th), however we’re doing simply great when it concerns the economy (3rd). Oh, and we make the Top 20 for education and health, so that’s a perk. Our lifestyle might definitely utilize a little aid (27th) and it would appear that we aren’t the best state (39th).
Must be all those bears and other wildlife, right?
Some folks will concur with this and others will disagree. Then there is the “return where you originated from” crowd that no matter what we state, will react with “return where you originated from.” I expect you simply can’t please everybody.
