From workplace accidents to assaults and health insurance-- or lack thereof-- a new study has found that Alaska is among the least safe states in which one can live.
While Alaska was deemed the most dangerous state, according to FBI crime statistics, this study looked at the overall safety of the state-- everything from fatal car crashes, homicide rates and number of hate groups to disaster preparedness, unemployment and bullying.
"Each state is safe from some dangers but falls prey to others. Safety is a basic human need. We require some form of it, such as personal and financial protection, in every part of daily life. But we're likely to feel more secure in some states than in others," the introduction on WalletHub reads.
