Connecticut ranks 20th in America in new study, according to US News

US News and World Report dropped their list of the best states in America for 2021, and Connecticut (which may be a surprise to some) made it up to #20 on the list this year.

There were 8 different categories that were scored, and here is how we scored as a state:

#3 in health care

#6 in education

#22 in economy

#46 in infrastructure

#45 in opportunity

#30 in fiscal stability

#6 in crime and corrections

#28 in natural environment

Two New England states were actually in the top 10: New Hampshire at #4 and Massachusetts at #9. Rhode Island, our neighbor, was predictably in the bottom third at #34.

#50 was Louisiana, which didn't even have a rank higher in the study than #42 in any of the 8 categories.

We all complain about Connecticut from time to time, but this study shows.. it could be a lot worse.
