6/10. Always been bad at those states quizzes. Didn't expect Hawaii to top the list though.

New Jersey kept popping into my head but I kept thinking, "No, not Jersey," and I always passed it over.

So basically a bunch of liberal states with good healthcare and Mormon Land.

Should it be surprising that 9 out of 10 of these states are "blue" (Liberal, leaning democrat). The only "red" state republican on this list is Utah. Maybe the Mormon's and their alcohol prohibition are up to something when it comes to health and life expectancy... Please, someone "make america healthy again" :-) (Disclosure: I live in NYC, I lean liberal/democrat and I fundamentally disagree (yet respect) current White House)

I lean right and am frequently embarrassed by the current occupant of the White House, but I would have voted for a cantaloupe before Mrs. Clinton. I question the validity of this quiz. Living in Arizona, I see huge numbers of retirees. They are typically people who have made some money and are vigorous enough to enjoy their sunset years. As a letter carrier, I delivered mail to thousands of 80-year-olds abd it seems that would raise out life expectancy. On the other hand, we have five of the ten largest Indian reservations in the U.S. If Jet Punk is using outdated statistics, then Native Americans would bring the numbers down, but more recent statistics show that health on reservations is improving dramatically, especially if the residents can avoid diabetes which still ravages their population.

Congrats @cooldrive: you actually did get your angry orange cantaloupe elected :-) To be clear, when I wrote "I respect", I meant I respect the office of the presidency. Not the current occupant. I also feel beyond embarrassed by his delusions, ignorance and incompetence. Arizona is breathtaking and people there are extremely welcoming. Cheers to All in your beautiful State!

I am currently conservative, living in northern California. I just wanted to mention for the reason that you guys did and I wanted to be included. And I have forgot what I was going to comment about why I thought these states were on this list. I do remember I was going to say the "Red" states are probably the happiest though.

It shouldn't be surprising. Liberals tend to be richer, money corresponds to health, hence liberals live longer.

I thought conservatives were the rich people, according to liberals. *cough* Trump *cough*

The current occupant of the White House should embarrass and deserves no respect from: any true liberal, any progressive, any centrist, any libertarian, any true conservative, any true Republican, any woman, any man, any "person of color," any person without color, any true Christian, any non-Christian, any patriotic American, any resident of planet Earth, any human being, and any non-human primate.

Notice that the majority of these states have four seasons with usually cold winters, while only two do not.

That doesn't much help Afghanistan or Mongolia. They have pretty cold winters. Careful about implying causality.

Three out of the four states with 'New' in their name are all in the top ten (excepting New Mexico). Therefore renaming ones state with the word 'New' should raise the life expectancy. A resident of New Kansas.

also, naming your state "Hawaii" is apparently good for life expectancy.
