Louisiana scored dead last for the second year in a row in the annual 聽released last week by U.S. 香港六和开奖历史记录 and World Report.

U.S. 香港六和开奖历史记录 staff ranks each state based on specific criteria: crime and corrections, economy, education, fiscal stability, heath care, infrastructure, natural environment and opportunity.听

2024 marks the second year in a row that Louisiana was ranked #50 in crime and corrections and by U.S. 香港六和开奖历史记录.

Louisiana did see some minor improvements in economy and opportunity. In 2023, the state ranked last in economy and #48 in opportunity. This year, it ranked second to last in economy and #44 in opportunity.

But similar to crime and corrections, there have been zero improvements in infrastructure and natural environment within the last year, U.S. 香港六和开奖历史记录 says. Louisiana's rankings in these fields remained at #49, and it's healthcare score also stayed stagnant at #45.

While Louisiana didn't see any improvement in crime and corrections, that doesn't mean it ranked last in public safety. New Mexico was named in the country by U.S. 香港六和开奖历史记录, in part because of its high rate in violent crime, including murder, robbery, aggravated assault and rape.听

The violent crime rate of New Mexico is 780 violent crimes per 100,000 residents. Louisiana follows New Mexico, with 629 violent crimes per 100,000 residents.

Despite small improvements in other areas, Louisiana worsened in fiscal, or financial, stability. In 2023, U.S. 香港六和开奖历史记录 ranked the state #38 in fiscal stability. This year, the ranking jumped to #41.听

Overall, Louisiana joins South Carolina, Michigan, Oklahoma, Alabama, Alaska, West Virginia, Arkansas, Mississippi and New Mexico as the lowest-ranking states in the Best States projects.

U.S. 香港六和开奖历史记录 said that Utah was the best state in the country for the second year in a row because of its consistently strong rankings across the board. Specifically, Utah placed second in education and third in economy and infrastructure.听
