Bankrate and the subsequent article in Fortune have proclaimed Colorado to be the 3rd best state for retirement.  The winner?  Wyoming.  The worst?  New York.  


Bankrate compiled data from a variety of sources on climate, cost of living, community well-being (studies on how happy people are), health care quality, crime rates, and the tax rate.  Especially for retirees, who often live on a fixed income, the tax rate was weighted quite heavily.  Here is the full study, so you can see how each state did in each category.   As with any broad-based survey, there is always controversy.  How does Wyoming's weather rank 8th best in the country?  So, it is important to look at each category, and for example, if a low tax rate and warm weather are the biggest factors for you individually, you can see which state might be best for you.
