“Study finds what we already knew: Washington is the best state”
“Washington was ranked the best state overall in the country based on a study done by the U.S. News and World Report.”
“Washington is the best state. Washingtonians already knew this, of course, but it’s nice to be reassured.
“The ranking comes from a recent study by the U.S. News and World Report. The magazine analyzed each state and measured the outcomes for citizens using 71 different metrics. The metrics considered health care, education, fiscal stability, as well as a state’s roads, bridges, internet and other infrastructure, public safety, and opportunity for its residents.”
“The data supporting these rankings were “drawn from extensive and reliable governmental and private sources,” along with a national survey of what matters most to citizens around the country, according to the magazine,” by KING-5 TV News, Seattle.
