LawnStarter's Quality of Life Index for Florida

National State Report / National City Report


Report Findings and Summary


Florida holds down the No. 45 spot on LawnStarter’s 2015 Quality of Life Index for the 50 states and the District of Columbia.

The index is based on six quality-of-life factors analyzed by LawnStarter and borrowed from The Economist -- GDP (economic output) per capita, average life expectancy, divorce rate, unemployment rate, geographic location (latitude) and male-female income equality. The Economist considers these factors to be good barometers for quality of life.

Tipping the balance in Florida’s favor are geographic location and male-female income equality, but other poor showings in other categories weighed down its overall ranking.

“For those who want to avoid cold, wet snow and who like a mix of rural farmland and horse pastures, bustling cities, and a living, breathing nightlife, Florida is a great state to make home,” MyMove.com says.
