Utah Ranked Among Most Livable States

Utah is the second most livable state in the US, according to this new ranking by Washington-based CQ Press, the reference and textbook-publishing division of Congressional Quarterly.

The publisher provided the information below to explain the rankings.

Unique among the various rankings of states, our Most Livable State Award does
not focus on any one category of data. Instead it takes into account a broad range of economic, educational, health-oriented, public safety, and environmental statistics.

The 2008 award is based on 44 factors ranging from median household income to crime rate, sunny days to infant mortality rate. The factors used for this year’s award are the same as those used last year.

Now in its 18th year, the Most Livable State Award is issued in conjunction with the publication of each year's new edition of State Rankings.
