New Hampshire is Considered the Healthiest States in the US.

NH such a safe bet.

New Hampshire is ranked America’s Top State for Quality of Life” by CNBC and top in Overall Child well being and the safest and most livable state by the Annie E. Casey Foundation. After all, New Hampshire is 86% trees with a population of just over 1.2 million people. Is it all that fresh air with 1300 lakes and beautiful country roads that calm people down.

New Hampshire’s high level of peace may be a reflection of its superior economic conditions. Only 8.1% of state residents are living in poverty — the lowest rate in the country. Even in the horrible financial times the United States experienced beginning in 2008, New Hampshire had half the unemployment rate of the country and lowest foreclosure rate. Now things are really looking bright financially here. New Hampshire also has one of the lowest rates of income inequality and the lowest rate of homicide in the country, the third-lowest rate of other violent crimes and the fifth-lowest incarceration rate. New Hampshire also has a 91.5% high school graduation rate — the fourth-highest — and the lowest rate of births among teenagers. All these factors have I?believe make NH such a safe bet.
