There were 37 key safety indicators across five categories that were measured.

WalletHub did the math for everyone, and Business Insider published this video that includes the most dangerous, and the safest states in the US.

On this particular map, the blue states are the safest, red the dangerous, and black the MOST dangerous. Guess what color Louisiana was slapped with?

Now, the key safety indicators were calculated across the board. While it does play a role, it wasn't just the states with the most murders, or crimes. It includes work safety, personal safety, financial safety, road safety, emergency preparedness, and more.

According to this study, Louisiana doesn't land DEAD last, but, damn, we were close, coming in at 49 out of 50, with only Mississippi trailing behind us.
