St. Patrick’s Day is coming up and you’re looking for a little “luck of the Irish.” If you’re not feeling particularly lucky, it’s possible you just don’t live in the right place.

Zippia recently released its list of the luckiest states in the country. From the highest lottery winnings to the places where people live longer lives, some states are luckier than others.

Along with lotto winners and overall life expectancy, Zippia measured median income, weather-related fatalities, unemployment rates,and car accident fatalities per 100,000 people to determine the luckiest states in America. And the winners are:

  1. Minnesota
  2. New Jersey
  3. New Hampshire
  4. Massachusetts
  5. New York
  6. Utah
  7. Washington
  8. Rhode Island
  9. Connecticut
  10. Hawaii

As the luckiest U.S. state, Minnesota had an impressive 22 lotto winners and a life expectancy of 81. New Jersey residents had even more lotto winners—with an annual total of 33, but life expectancy was one year lower, however. Number three on the luckiest states list, New Hampshire, also had a life expectancy of 80 (the same as New Jersey)—but only had 12 big lotto winners.

The fourth luckiest state, Massachusetts, was tied as one of the lowest extreme weather areas. It also had a high life expectancy of 81. Rounding out the top five, New York had an awesomely impressive 50 big lotto wins and a life expectancy of 81-years!

Could it be time for a move?
