Worst areas in the study: Life expectancies (No. 42 in the nation), Crime (No. 38 in the nation)

Best areas in the study: Climate (No. 20 in the nation), Senior population: (No. 26 in the nation)

The warm climate may be an attraction, but the older population doesn't seem to thrive in it: Georgia's life expectancies are among the 10 lowest in the nation. A high rate of property crime is also a concern.
