Study calls Louisiana worst state in country for women

State is not bad place for women

In a report published Monday for Women's History Month, financial website WalletHub said it looked at 23 key indicators of living standards for women, and Minnesota topped the list.

MA is the second best state from women to live in across the country, according to a study by WalletHub. The data set ranges from median earnings for female workers to women's preventive health care to female homicide rate.

With a total score of 78.22 Minnesota came in at number 1 with MA and Vermont taking the second and third place rankings.

The Land of 10,000 Lakes scored highest when it comes to women's economic and social well-being, and the state scored among the top three in safety and health. All the usual ones show up at the bottom - Louisiana, Arkansas, Mississippi, Oklahoma.

Fourth-highest high school graduation rate for women, after Nebraska, Wisconsin and North Dakota.

Our state came in as one of the highest (2nd) for "Highest Women's Life Expectancy at Birth".

MA ranked second overall, coming behind Minnesota in terms of the general "best" state for women.

The top 5 best states overall, according to WalletHub's report, appear below with an interactive map to view the rest of the rankings.
