No. 10: Kentucky
Kentucky's low cost of living is easy on the budget, and it's of course a basketball lover's dream.
The biggest problem for Kentucky residents is the state's health care system and low wellness scores.
The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, or AHRQ, gave Kentucky's health care system its fifth-lowest score in the nation as part of its most recent quality report. The agency, which is part of the Department of Health and Human Services, has found numerous issues with Kentucky's health care. It noted, for example, especially high rates of adults who didn't receive timely care even though they needed it "right away" for an illness or injury.
Gallup-Healthways, which tracks emotional and physical well-being as part of an extensive national survey, gave Kentucky its second-lowest score behind West Virginia.
