Best states for retirement

Missouri is the 15th best state to retire in, according to the website Bankrate. You can also see each state's rankings in the seven categories they were ranked on.

The number one state was South Dakota and the worst was NY.

Nevada did not rank well for healthcare quality, well-being, and crime, but it did rank high for taxes, according to the study.

In South Dakota - one of the most tax-friendly states in the USA - residents pay no personal income tax, and the median rent for a 1-bedroom apartment is $565, according to data from Apartment List.

The study found Maryland tied with New Mexico for the second worst place for retirees to settle. The things that make you happy that give meaning to your life, your social relationships, your spousal relationships, all inform your happiness when you retire'.

In New York, the average personal income tax rate ranges from 4% to 8.82% over eight income brackets.

The survey heavily weighed cost of living, taxes, health care quality and weather, and took other factors into account, as well. Arkansas was slightly worse than California.

Missouri ranked 15th, Kentucky was 30th, and IL ranked toward the end of the list at 44.

Louisiana: The Southern state is not great for retirement either as its near the bottom in crime, culture and health care quality.
