With all of the lists that come out ranking cities and states by different criteria, sometimes our home state of Michigan falls short of the best but is still better than the worst.  That is true for WalletHub's newest ranking of 2019's Best States to Live in, where Michigan lands 25th on the list.

Well, it doesn't take a mathamagician to realize that 25th is right smack dab in the middle of said list.  So, by official decree, we have decided to make Michigan 2019's Most "Meh" place to live!

Michigan ranked 23rd in Affordability, 27th in Economy, 30th in Education & Health, 13th in Quality of Life, and 25th in Safety.  See?  Those are all pretty average scores!  So, next time someone asks why they should move to Michigan, just say "Meh" and they will know exactly what you mean!

And if for some reason you care about how other states ranked, here is the top 10...
