Is Garden State a Lucky State?
There are a lot of reasons to want to get lucky here in the Garden State. We want to give the green light every day, we play the lottery like it’s going out of fashion, and don’t forget that we are home to one of the world’s great gambling capitals, Atlantic City. So there are plenty of opportunities to get lucky, but as far as the real data goes, how lucky is it here in New Jersey?
Well, at least according to one study, we’re actually pretty lucky. Hey, how about that. We do well in a study where we want to be successful. It doesn’t exactly happen every day here.
The study was published by 24/7 Wall St., and you’ll love the Garden State’s ranking. Areas such as life expectancy, traffic fatalities, and lottery winnings all came into the conclusion. Here’s how we did in those categories.
We are in the top 10 in all of these areas. Let’s take a closer look …
Fatal Traffic Accidents … Despite our reputation as a tough state to drive (and with all the traffic, construction, and traffic jams it’s a well-deserved rap) in 2019, Garden State ranks the 4th lowest fatality nationwide. The roads can be frustrating, but they’re also surprisingly safe
Life expectancy at birth ,. If you live in the Garden State, you can statistically expect to live a long life. The average life expectancy here is only a tick under 80, and that’s good enough for the 9th highest in the country.
Lottery wins… Oddly enough, most people seem to be more concerned about this one? So, are you going to strike hard in the Garden State? Well, maybe. It turns out that in 2019 we were living in the state with the 6th highest chance of lottery wins per adult. Not too bad.
So welcome to one of the luckiest states in the country. Who would have ever thought so? Finally, we do good in a study in which we want to do good.
