  • Lowest high school graduation rate. Of course, I suspect this is due to illegal immigrants but, there are also tons of ignorant citizens here. (SIGH) i wish i could move.

  • Incidentally, how is MN worst for tornadoes after some of the ones that have gone through OK/MO/KS/NE/etc? And why is IL worst for robbery when they just changed it to the murder capital, seems that would trump petty larceny?

  • I think Texas has a lot more problems than the lowest high school grad rate.

  • Identity Theft, I so believe that, you know how many idiots live in this state. Not to mention all the gullible old people that live here and tourists, yeah. I think stupidity is a huge problem here as well.

  • It quite possibly is the "least green", but I suspect the other rustbelt states are in close contention. Not that some haven't done their damndest to chase every single industrial job out of the country...

  • Minnesota has a lot of "sighted" tornado activity but not a lot of major damage from them (Wadena was bad a few years ago but usually nothing on that scale). Winter as a whole should be Minnesota's crap statistic.

    In Illinois we had 23 shootings with 3 deaths in one overnight period last Friday and they think robbery is the worst thing we've got? LOL

    Those are the two states I've lived in most recently so I don't feel qualified to talk about the others.

  • Pollution is the biggest issue in California according to the chart.

    Gotta agree, but that's not really so surprising with a state where everyone drives everywhere, and a huge population.
