No. 7: Louisiana
Louisiana is a relatively cheap place to live, with a light tax burden and low cost of living. It's everything else that's pushed the Pelican State to the bottom of this year's list.
Crime is a problem in Louisiana, with relatively high property and violent crimes. It also posted poor health care quality scores and a low ranking on the Gallup-Healthways' wellness survey.
The weather can also be tough to endure, especially over the summer. Overall, Louisiana is the second-most humid state in the country, ranking just behind Mississippi. The average morning humidity is 90 percent in Lake Charles, Louisiana. In New Orleans, it's 86 percent.
