These 10 states are America's worst places to live in 2022
These are the U.S. states with the worst quality of life for residents, based on CNBC's annual America's Top State for Business study.

  • In this era of severe worker shortages and unprecedented mobility, employees are demanding great quality of life in the state where they work.
  • Half of business executives surveyed agree it is important to do business in states with inclusive laws.
  • CNBC's annual America's Top State for Business study considers multiple measures of the quality of life, health and inclusion.

With five million more job openings in the U.S. than there are employees to fill them, workers have more leverage than they have had in years. They are using that power — and unprecedented mobility — to demand a welcoming environment and great quality of life in the places they work.

That is why CNBC's annual America's Top States for Business study pays particular attention to quality of life. Now, with workers increasingly holding the cards, it is especially important in our methodology.

Our Life, Health and Inclusion category considers factors such as crime rates, environmental quality, and health care. For the first time in 2022, we also consider the availability of childcare, which the U.S. Chamber of Commerce found is a major obstacle for parents seeking to reenter the workforce.

We also consider inclusiveness of state laws in areas like protections against discrimination and voting rights. That's not politics, it's business.

Many Gen Z and millennial workers will turn down jobs that don't match their values, Deloitte found. If you need workers, you want to be in a place they are willing to go to.

We found some states are particularly welcoming. But these ten states fall short.

10. Nevada

With only about 400 licensed childcare centers in a state with more than 3 million people, Nevada is one of the worst states for access to childcare at a time when it is desperately needed. Also, the desert air is far from clear in the state's most populous areas, according to the American Lung Association. Residents in Clark County, home of Las Vegas, endure more than three weeks of high ozone days per year.

The Volunteer State has notched some impressive economic development victories lately —like a major Ford electric vehicle facility — gaining lots of new residents in the process. But those workers are moving to a state that is chipping away at inclusiveness. The state has passed a series of laws aimed at the LGBTQ community, including a transgender sports bill this year that the Human Rights Campaign calls "discriminatory, unfair, and unnecessary."

Access to licensed childcare centers in Indiana is among the worst in the nation, according to Child Care Aware of America. And the state spends a mere $76 per person on public health, according to the United Health Foundation. That, too, is among the worst in the nation.

The Land of Enchantment is cursed by crime — the second highest violent crime rate in the nation, according to FBI statistics. Only Alaska is worse. In her 2022 State of the State address, Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham made a business case for tackling the problem. "If we want to keep up our economic momentum," she said, "we have got to get crime under control."

Louisiana is America's unhealthiest state, according to the United Health Foundation, with the nation's third highest cholesterol level, and the fourth highest rate of premature deaths. According to FBI statistics, the violent crime rate is among the nation's highest.

This year, Missouri grudgingly agreed to join 45 other states and allow early voting beginning with the general election in November. But the same bill, scheduled to take effect after the state's August primaries, outlaws most mail-in voting, and adds a deeply controversial voter ID provision.

Oklahomans are not big on taking care of themselves, according to United Health Foundation data, which show they are among the least likely to exercise or even eat fruits and vegetables. The state is also among the worst for adults without health insurance, and childhood vaccines. Hospitals have spent much of the Covid-19 pandemic under stress, according to data from the Commonwealth Fund.

Skilled workers are still flocking to Texas despite longstanding quality of life issues. According to Census data, the state ranks No. 3 for net migration of college educated workers behind Florida and Washington. But when they arrive, they are finding limited childcare options, a stressed health care system with the highest rate of uninsured, new curbs on voting rights, and few protections against discrimination.

"It's a dry heat," The Grand Canyon State saying goes. But it leads to some of the worst air quality in the nation, according to the American Lung Association. Maricopa County, home to Phoenix, endures 39 high ozone days per year. That puts more stress on an already poor health care system, short on hospital beds and staff. The state spends just $79 per person on public health, among the country's lowest. Arizona offers stunning natural beauty and top-notch cultural and recreational attractions. But that comes at a stiff price in America's worst state to live in.

Well, it's hard to imagine, but I guess when people are starving and can't find work they are desperate enough to try to live in a country where health care can bankrupt them, their kids can be shot and killed going to school and they can be shot and killed just shopping for groceries or in a parade celebrating a holiday, bound to be infected with a virus where so many refuse to do what's necessary to prevent its spread, be discriminated against, where they've been told the streets are paved with gold.  The Statue of Liberty is a "welcome" sign to them about the "exceptional" Land of the Freedom for those not part of the world's record for incarceration and the Home of the Bravado.

The Chinese government doesn't make it easy, and it's almost impossible to become a Chinese citizen.  I'm able to reside in China because I'm married to a Chinese citizen and am here as a guest only with a visa renewable every 3 years as long as I stay married to a Chinese citizen, although the government officials have offered to give me a green card, but I don't want or need it.  People can't move here just because they want to, or just because they think they can live a better life (even though, believe it or not, it's a lot better life than anybody who doesn't know China would allow themselves to find out) but they have to have a specific needed purpose for being here.  My original visa was as a "Foreign Expert", i.e. an expert to teach English to Chinese students.  Now that I'm retired, my Visa is for "Visiting Family".  

Actually, on my Canadian govenment retirement income, I live a lot better life here than I possibly could even come close to in Canada, and I really don't have any reason or desire whatsoever to get up on a soapbox in the city square and criticize the government.

First of all CNBC? jrSmiley_86_smiley_image.gif

They automatically ruled out every last Democrat run bastion of stupidity- so the results are skewed.

Second, Scott Cohn? 

A sought-after public speaker and the owner of a Northern California-based production company

He is a Californian- in other words shit for brains. He is living in one of the states that has the most people fleeing from it. Guess what the other top contenders are?

States people are leaving

According to USPS change-of-address data, these are the 10 top states people are fleeing. 

1. California

2021 saw a net loss of over 101 thousand households in California despite a mostly pleasant climate and robust tech industry. Rising housing costs, rising taxes and politics seem to be driving many people to look for opportunities elsewhere. Other factors that emigrants have cited are the rising threat of wildfires and the constantly increasing cost of living. Many families from the state are relocating to Texas.  

2. New York

Moving out of New York has become trendy, it would seem. The skyrocketing cost of living and ever-increasing local, state and federal taxes are driving factors. Many technology and banking industry workers that had spent a great deal of time in the office have found that working remotely due to the pandemic better suits their desires, allowing them to leave the city and, perhaps, live closer to extended family members. New York saw a net loss of over 75 thousand families last year. 

3. Illinois

IllinoisPolicy.org cited opportunities for employment and better housing as the leading cause of the population decline in the state. Nearly half of would-be movers also said that the tax rate is a major factor in their reasons for leaving. About 29 thousand outbound moves weren’t reciprocated in 2021. Weather, high traffic levels and crime only make the declining population problem worse for the state. 

10 States People Are Moving To

Southern states, where taxes tend to be low and sunshine is abundant, make up the top seven places moving destinations. These are the top ten recent population gainers. 

1. Texas 

According to the USPS, Texas gained over 12,700 residents overall in 2021. Part of the influx is due to the state’s conservative political environment, which is inviting to many people from nearby liberal states. Low taxes, a robust economy, a low cost of living and excellent weather round out the list of why Texas is a popular destination. 

2. Florida 

An admittedly non-scientific survey conducted by  The Tampa Bay Times told of taxes, affordable housing, sunshine and relaxed Covid restrictions being the leading causes of Florida’s influx of residents. Sandy beaches and tropical weather are a magnet for those searching for the affordable endless summer. Florida has always been a favorite of retirees and is now attracting a younger crowd with jobs that allow them to move around.  

3. South Carolina

Charleston.com cited reasons similar to Florida’s population increase, with the addition of people in search of green space as the drivers behind South Carolina’s growth. The pandemic has spurred migration to the state through remote work allowing families to move closer together and a strong job market keeping existing residents there. The state saw a net gain of over 10 thousand residents last year. 

4. North Carolina 

Many sources describe the reasons for North Carolina’s recent inflow of residents as being work, family and weather-related. North Carolina’s topography makes the state one of the most sought-after places to live among outdoor enthusiasts. The state saw a 9,000 person net increase in 2021 due largely to families’ newfound ability to choose where they live. 

5. Georgia

Georgia realized a net population gain of just over 5,000 last year. The state is full of outdoor activity opportunities, tropical summers, mild winters, beaches and plenty of mountainous terrains. It’s no wonder families are arriving in droves to take advantage of the low housing costs and the strong job market in Georgia. 

6. Tennessee

Tourism is the number two industry in Tennessee. A net gain of over 4,500 families in the state can partially be attributed to many people deciding that Tennessee is ideal for living like you’re on vacation. Tennessee’s low cost of living, low taxes, expanding job market and natural beauty make it a perfect location to call home for many retirees and young families alike

7. Nevada

Nevada’s population grew by over 3,100 families last year. Many of the immigrants came from the Pacific Northwest and southern states that are typically more humid than Nevada. Always popular with retirees for its weather, the state’s proximity to adventure-laden places in its five neighboring states, and its low cost of living are major driving factors in the populating surge among younger movers.  

There is reality; then there is shit for brains liberal stupidity. Cohn like all other leftists isn't a fan of reality.

Tennessee's population grew nearly 9% between 2010 and 2020.  Spring Hill, located 30 miles south of Nashville, had the 10th largest percentage increase among U.S. cities with a population over 50,000 in 2021.
