I enjoy living in South Dakota.  Of course, I liked living in Minnesota and Iowa too.  Now a new study says life is better in some states than in others.

A new 'Best States To Live In' ranking by USNEWS.com says South Dakota doesn't even make the top 10.

  3. Minnesota
  4. North Dakota

South Dakota came in 15th. Some of the criteria used to rank the Best States included: Healthcare, Education, Crime & Corrections, Infrastructure, Opportunity, Economy, and Government.
