Thinking of Moving? This Is the Best State in America in 2023

Those thinking of relocating might want to head to Utah.

Utah was named the best state in the nation, according to U.S. News & World Report’s fifth annual state rankings. The Beehive State shot up from its No. 3 position last year thanks to its high scores in health care, its economy, and the state’s fiscal stability. Utah has become a hot spot for startups, tech entrepreneurs, and young people thanks, in part, to its low unemployment rate.

“So many things—a thriving economy, stunning natural beauty, a strong sense of community where people look out for each other, world-class educational opportunities, responsible government, and much more—make Utah a truly special place,” Utah Gov. Spencer Cox said in a statement.

States were evaluated in eight categories: health care, education, economy, infrastructure, opportunity, fiscal stability, crime and corrections, and natural environment. More than 70 metrics and tens of thousands of data points were considered. (Washington, DC, was not included in the analysis.)
