Utah and Minnesota “Most Liveable States of the Future”

September 25 2012 - 1:05 pm

(Reuters) – Utah and Minnesota came out on top in a national poll to pinpoint the most livable states in the future, based on the habits and decisions made by citizens and community leaders today. The survey results released on Tuesday were based on responses from 530,000 Americans in all 50 states that were studied to spot trends indicating future improvement, said Dan Witters, spokesman for the Gallup poll. Utah ran away with the results for the poll’s 13 metrics. The home of the Great Salt Lake came in either first or second for such topics as smoking rates, clean and safe water, positive work relationships, daily learning and public perceptions that the state was “getting better,” not “getting worse.”
