I have a graduate degree and I'm loud and fun! Lol

And I agree with 6.7traveler. All those other states are the single worse state in the country. Even New Jersey (which is secretly quite lovely, but let's all continue to hate it just because.)

Finally, although OP has convinced me with linked data and statistics that Louisiana is the WORST! (OP's emphasis), I am so darn curious, I need to check out your horrible state one of these days.
I lived in Nebraska for ten months. And it was ten months of pure hell. Some people just mesh with certain places. I couldn't stand the racism, the overbearing neighbors, or the lack of work, but think if I'd been living in Omaha or Lincoln my opinion of Nebraska would've been world's different.

Louisiana is a great state imo. Sure it may have high crime and proverty in certain parts, but what city doesn't? Heck even parts of Texas has high crime and proverty. Louisiana makes up for it in food and culture.

I can agree with that. The education system (high school & lower) is poor in LA, too. The state is ranked near the bottom in education.

On the other hand, Louisiana is like the best state ever in number of NFL players per capita despite it's education system being traditionally among the nation's worst.

For this state having the worst education, I have to say the rest of this country has an awful lot of dumb people in it too.
Its not just in Louisiana. Ask college students anywhere about fairly basic history and they wont be able to tell you. Its sad all around.

It has the nation's highest murder rate -

It has the nation's and the WORLD'S highest incarceration rate -

Louisiana is the world's prison capital | NOLA.com

It's among the worst of all states in it's mortality rate -

And it's poverty rate is off the charts -

Poverty rate stuck at record 46.5 million; Louisiana has 2nd highest rate

I think a better state to live in instead of Louisiana would be like Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Maine!!
What are you doing to make Louisiana better?

Further reinforces poor education... football players rarely finish school!
