NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — WalletHub released its report on the best states to retire in 2020.
They compared the 50 states across three key dimensions:
- 1) Affordability
- 2) Quality of Life
- 3) Health Care
They used dimensions using 47 relevant metrics. Each metric was graded on a 100-point scale, with a score of 100 representing the most favorable conditions for retirement.
WalletHub officials then calculated each state’s weighted average across all metrics to determine its overall score and used the resulting scores to rank-order their sample.
