What are the 10 worst states in the U.S.? According to a CNBC study, it’s these 10. (Don’t blame us, we’re just passing along the info.)

The way the research was done, per CNBC: Our Life, Health and Inclusion category considers factors such as crime rates, environmental quality, and health care. For the first time in 2022, we also consider the availability of childcare, which the U.S. Chamber of Commerce found is a major obstacle for parents seeking to reenter the workforce.

We also consider inclusiveness of state laws in areas like protections against discrimination and voting rights. That’s not politics, it’s business.
