Mississippi is the 5th-best state for retirement, according to new research that Bankrate.com released today. The analysis included cost of living, taxes, healthcare, crime and climate.
According to the website, Mississippi is a great place to retire …
The Magnolia State is not just one of the warmest in the U.S., it also has relatively low state and local taxes and a lower-than-average cost of living.
Those factors make Mississippi an accommodating place for retirees, even though its crime rate is a little higher than average. It also has only 178 doctors per 100,000 people — one of the lowest physician-to-resident ratios in the nation, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.
