Everyone wants to know how their state stacks up when it comes to retirement. After all, you have to decide whether you’re going to stay or seek out greener pastures once you’ve quit the daily grind.

To determine which states are best for retirement, Bankrate scoured government and expert sources to find out how well states ranked on seven metrics:

  • Cost of living
  • Crime
  • Culture
  • Health care quality
  • Taxes
  • Weather
  • Well-being

Then, using 2017 Bankrate survey results, they weighted those factors based on what Americans told them was most important. Once all the numbers were crunched, the states lined up in the following order, from worst to best states for retirement.
