A List Of The Most Peaceful States In The U.S.

Yesterday, we posted a list of the most violent states based on a new study done by Institute for Economics and Peace. Today, we bring you the counterpart to that state and highlight the most peaceful places to live and visit.

April 24 (Reuters) – Violence and its aftermath cost the U.S. economy some $460 billion last year, according to the Institute for Economics and Peace’s second annual United States Peace Index, released on Tuesday.

Those costs – which include direct burdens like medical care for victims and the prison system and indirect factors like lost productivity – vary widely by state, with the most peaceful states bearing the lowest burden and the most violent spending
far more.

A state’s level of peacefulness is not the only factor that determines the economic toll of violence; its population and level of overall economic activity also has a strong influence.
