NH Comes in 2nd As Best State

new-hampshire-statsConcord, NH – U.S. News & World Report today recognized New Hampshire as the No. 2 overall “Best State” in the country, according to their newly released “Best States” rankings. Following the announcement, Governor Chris Sununu issued the following statement:

“New Hampshire is among the best states in the nation to live, work and raise a family,” said Governor Chris Sununu. “Though we have much work to do to ensure that our state continues to grow and thrive, this announcement is something that Granite Staters can be particularly proud of today.  It will also serve as useful information to those considering moving their home or business to New Hampshire.”

U.S. News evaluated states across 68 metrics to create the Best States rankings. The rankings are based on tens of thousands of data points provided by McKinsey & Company’s Leading States Index. In calculating the rankings, categories were weighted based on a national “citizen experience” survey, conducted by McKinsey, that asked people to prioritize each subject in their state and provide their levels of satisfaction with government services.
