Indianapolis ranks low in “Best State Capitals” study

Indianapolis doesn’t rank high on the list for the “best state capitals to live in.” At least, that’s according to a recent study by WalletHub.

The study compared all 50 states across 49 key indicators of affordability, economic well-being, quality of education and health, and quality of life.

Indianapolis, Indiana ranked 37th overall. Lansing, Michigan ranked 32nd.

Indiana’s capital didn’t rank well in a few key areas either, placing 44th for highest crime rate and 46th for highest premature death rate.

The top-ranked state capitals include:

  • Austin, Texas
  • Raleigh, North Carolina
  • Madison, Wisconsin
  • Denver, Colorado
  • Lincoln, Nebraska

The lowest-ranked state capital was Trenton, New Jersey.
